2007 Colloquy on
The Role of the Theological Librarian in Teaching, Learning, and Research


Dates: April 18-23, 2007--Wabash College

Theological librarians play an essential role in the educational process. Institutional standards developed by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) highlight the need for librarians to contribute to theological scholarship -- teaching, learning, and research -- in ways specific both to the profession and to the particular school, its mission, curriculum, and resources. Yet in practice the means of fulfilling this expectation are not always clear or immediately available to librarians. This colloquy explored the vocation of theological librarianship and promoted the development of strategies and skills for increasing the effectiveness of librarians in the teaching/learning/research process in their own institutional and professional contexts.

Goals of the Colloquy:

1. To provide an opportunity for theological librarians new to the profession to reflect on the distinctiveness of theological librarianship as a vocation and a profession;

2. To assist theological librarians in developing their role as educators and as partners with faculty and students in the task of theological scholarship;

3. To explore the future of theological libraries, including the theological librarian’s role in implementing change in educational practices related to the impact of new technology, methods, resources, paradigms and trends on theological scholarship/librarianship;

4. To provide opportunities for participants to consider the collaborative nature of librarianship in theological education and to engage in a community of peers.
