Judaica Librarianship 20 (2017) Call for Papers

Situated in the field of Library and Information Science and international in scope, Judaica Librarianship (peer-reviewed) provides a forum for scholarship on the theory and practice of Jewish Studies and Information Studies. The journal seeks to publish research articles and essays related to the development, management, and/or digital curation of Judaica and Hebraica collections in all types of libraries and archives, the creation and dissemination of information resources in all formats, the promotion of Jewish information literacy, and Jewish bibliography and booklore in general. All research articles and essays go through double-blind peer review. We now welcome submissions for the next volume.

Call for Reviews: Books, Electronic Resources, Exhibits, and Digital Humanities Projects

In addition to comprehensive review essays of reference works and electronic resources, we welcome thorough reviews of library and museum exhibits pertinent to the scope of Judaica Librarianship, and of Jewish Studies digital humanities projects. Please contact the editor for all review types except for digital humanities projects. The latter refers to substantial undertakings that use digital platforms and technologies to advance research in the field of Jewish Studies, rather than just digitization projects of books or objects. This new journal section will cover reviews of digital humanities projects and interviews with practitioners, and serve as a forum for scholars, students, and librarians. For more details regarding reviews of DH projects, please contact section editor Michelle Chesner at

Submission deadline for the journal's next issue (2017) is December 31, 2016
