Small Theological Libraries as Place (On Demand)

The idea of “library as place” has become challenged/problematized because of two concurrent realities — the pandemic and the growing popularity of online instructional delivery. These two realities have aggravated longstanding questions about the status of small theological libraries already struggling with limited personnel and resources. How can we envision the “theological library as place” in such a way that we can revalue physical space while also orienting and guiding the development of virtual spaces? After speakers have shared concepts and resources, participants will be broken up into small groups to discuss experiences, including challenges and successes, and may focus on either physical place or virtual place.

I'm a member of the Atla Board of Directors and would love to hear your thoughts. Talk to me about the Small Libraries Interest Group and racial/ethnic diversity. As you can probably guess I miss large expanses of water (i.e. ocean).
