Description
Theological librarians in the 21st-century play an essential role in theological education. Institutional standards developed by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) highlight the centrality of the library for theological scholarship and education. Librarians serve at a nexus of faculty, student, and institutional instructional needs. This colloquy will explore the vocation of theological librarianship and promote the development of strategies and skills for increasing the effectiveness of librarians in the teaching and learning process in their institutional and professional contexts.

Goals
1. To provide an opportunity for those new to the profession to reflect on the
distinctiveness of theological librarianship in the 21st-century as a vocation and profession
2. To assist theological librarians in developing their role as educators
3. To explore the role of librarians as partners with faculty in theological education
4. To consider the future of libraries, including the librarian's role in implementing
changes related to distance education, new technologies, and trends in higher education
5. To provide opportunities for participants to consider the collaborative nature of librarianship in
theological education
6. To engage with a community of peers

Stipend
Participants will receive a stipend of $1,500 for full participation in the colloquy, plus local expenses and travel. We are limited in paying stipends to participants who are teaching in the U.S. under an H-1B visa.
