Things to Sign Up For
ANNUAL AJL CONVENTION
Registration information and forms for the 2009 AJL convention are available on the AJL web site at www.jewishlibraries.org. If you go to the website, on the left you will see a drop-down for the Convention. From there, you can download the registration form (actually, you can type it up ON the website, and then just print it up), links to the hotel for reservations, and information for exhibitors and advertisers. And the tentative schedule is online as well.
The dates of the convention are July 5 – July 8, just before the ALA convention in Chicago. You are invited to register NOW, since they've set a "recession special", and have rolled the prices back to less than those of Convention 2007 – the full 2009 registration price is $450.
For information, feel free to contact convention organizers Cheryl.Banks@gmail.com or Shoshanah Seidman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Association of Jewish Libraries is pleased to announce scholarships of $500 to students enrolled or accepted in graduate schools of library and information science.

STUDENTS WHO WISH TO APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS SHOULD SUBMIT APPLICATIONS BY APRIL 1, 2009
The application is available on the AJL website at www.jewishlibraries.org/ajlweb/scholarships/scholarship.htm.
