Library staff will be attending the ATLA (American Theological Library Association) Conference from June 14-20th. The library offices will be closed, and there will be no SWITCH deliveries or inter-library loan available during that time. Thank you!
Hello from the Queen City!
It was a busy and robust time in Charlotte for theological libraries. After all, with the NASCAR headquarters 1 block from the hotel, what could the theme be but “Theological Libraries: The Speed of Change”.
Among the many sessions I attended, the ones that will have the most impact here at SHST included the 1/2 day workshop led by Kevin L. Smith, M.L.S., J.D., Director of Copyright and Scholarly Communications, Duke University (“Copyright Law Inside Out — A Participant-Driven Workshop”); and “E-books: Nuts and Bolts”, with Patsy Yang and Matthew Thiesen from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. And, for the first time, I participated in the poster session, with “I Love What You’ve Done With The Place!”, demonstrating the make-over which created the Lux Center from an under-used section of the reference area.
More details to follow!
