Evan Boyd Appointed Library Director at United Lutheran Seminary

We are excited to announce that Evan Boyd has been named Library Director at United Lutheran Seminary (ULS).

ULS formed from the unification of two historic Lutheran seminaries in Gettysburg and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Boyd will serve as the first Library Director for the consolidated seminary and will be responsible for both the Krauth branch (Philadelphia) and the Wentz branch (Gettysburg).

Evan has most recently served as Director of Library Services and Assistant Professor of Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, Ohio. He received a degree in library science from Dominican University, River Forest, IL and a MAR from The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia.

“I am honored to be joining United Lutheran Seminary,” said Evan, “as it launches itself into a new era in Lutheran theological education. As a lifelong Lutheran and graduate of LTSP (MAR, 2007), I look forward to further integrating the collections and services of the A.R. Wentz and C. P. Krauth Memorial Libraries so that we can best serve the seminary community and the greater church in new and inventive ways.”

Beginning this summer, hewill oversee the library operation on both campuses of ULS, including more than 400,000 volumes, materials, and resources. He will also direct the archives of the Seminary and Region 8 Archive, hosted by the A.R. Wentz facility.

Evan will hold primary residence in Philadelphia but will travel frequently between the two campuses.

Please join us in congratulating Boyd on this new position.
