Theological Librarianship Editorial Board Welcomes Two New Editors

The American Theological Library Association (ATLA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Manly “Bo” Adams, Jr. and Chris Anderson to the Editorial Board of Theological Librarianship: An Online Journal of the American Theological Library Association.

Bo is currently the Head of Public Services at Emory University, where he has previously served as Systems and Reference Librarian and as an Instructional Technologist. He contributed to an Ithaka study on supporting the changing research practices of religious studies scholars and has also published in the ATLA Proceedings and in the Feasting on the Word commentary series. He will receive his MLIS from the University of Alabama this summer and also has a PhD in Religion from Emory, a ThM from Columbia Theological Seminary, a MTS from Candler School of Theology at Emory, and a BS Computer Science from Dartmouth College.

Chris has most recently been Associate Dean of Libraries at Drew University, preceded by time as Acting Dean of Libraries, as Head of Special Collections, and as Methodist Librarian. He has served on the editorial boards of Briefs in Religion and Sport and Methodist History and was the founding editor of the International Journal of Religion and Sport. He is the author of two books on Methodist missionary exhibits and has published articles and essays in various academic and popular journals and books. He received his PhD and MPhil in Religion from Drew, MSLIS from Syracuse University, MDiv from Asbury Seminary, and BS from Houghton College.

These editors will join Editor in Chief Jennifer Woodruff Tait and other editors Miranda Bennett of the University of South Carolina Library (until she departs later this year to become editor of the ATLA Proceedings), Barnaby Hughes of ATLA, and Keegan Osinski of Vanderbilt University on the Editorial Board.

As we move forward in making the ATLA Publishing Program a reality, these new appointments will continue to help us to achieve our core purposes of promoting worldwide scholarly communication in religion and theology by advancing the work of libraries and related information providers.

Theological Librarianship is an open access journal that publishes essays, columns, critical reviews, bibliographic essays, and peer-reviewed articles on various aspects of theological librarianship and its contribution to theological education. The journal is published twice a year. The purposes of Theological Librarianship are to foster the professional development of theological librarians and to contribute to and enrich the profession of theological librarianship.

Thank you to the search committee who reviewed applications and conducted interviews as well as to those who expressed interest in these positions.
