This is wonderful news, Susan. Congratulations and many thanks for being an important part of making it happen. Our affiliation with ALA has been gradually raising AJL's profile in the library world. A colleague in the Graduate Library at Michigan where I work just asked me yesterday about AJL being included in the Youth Media Awards press showcase at ALA beginning at Midwinter 2019 in Seattle.
It would be great if we can next get the Judaica Reference and Bibliography Awards into the spotlight of an ALA reference forum of proportional prominence. Thank you again for the great work! See you in Denver at ALA MW next week! Elliot Elliot H. Gertel AJL-ALA Liaison Irving M.
