Brandeis librarian elected president of Association of Jewish Libraries
Jim Rosenbloom at helm of international Jewish literacy organizationBrandeis Judaica Librarian Jim Rosenbloom has been elected president of the Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL).
The AJL is an organization with approximately about 1,000 members -- including archives, museums, synagogues and schools -- that promotes Jewish literacy through enhancement of libraries and library resources and through leadership for the profession and practitioners of Judaica librarianship.
Rosenbloom, who said it was an honor to be elected to the two-year term in July 2010, has been a member of AJL for about a decade.
"It's a lot of work but extremely satisfying to know I can have an influence on the future of Judaica librarianship in the United States and elsewhere," Rosenbloom said. "I have wonderful colleagues around the country and around the world."
