This year marks the 200th anniversary of the Wissenschaft des Judentums movement, or the birth of Jewish Studies as an academic discipline. For the 22nd issue of Judaica Librarianship, the editorial board invites you to submit papers on the contribution of libraries and archives, as well as individual librarians and archivists or librarian–scholar collaborations, to the scholarly field of Jewish Studies. Papers could focus on collection building, in particular collections that contributed to the formation and development of Jewish Studies; description of, and discovery systems for library and archival objects, including library catalogs, library guides, archival finding aids, or metadata creation for digitized collections; bibliographies or other reference tools; reference, research, and instruction services, including online tutorials; and library outreach efforts, including interaction with scholars and students on social media. Other papers that meet the journal’s scope are welcome as well. For JL’s submission guidelines and policies, see the journal homepage at https://ajlpublishing.org/jl/; or contact the editor for any questions. The deadline is January 31, 2020.
