A meeting of the Pacific Northwest Religious Studies and Theological Library Association (PNWRSTLA) will be held on Monday, May 13 at the Mount Angel Abbey Library in St. Benedict, Oregon.

Event Schedule

The event will feature Dr. David Hollenberg, Associate Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Department of Religious Studies, University of Oregon, on the Yemen Manuscripts Digitization Initiative.

Christine Fruin, ATLA Scholarly Communication and Digital Projects Manager, will present on “Authors’ Rights and Responsibilities: Understanding Copyright & Open Access in Modern Scholarly Publishing.”

In addition, Michael J. Paulus Jr., University Librarian and Assistant Provost for Educational Technology at Seattle Pacific University, and staff plan to address the need for programs like the SPU Library’s brand new Information Studies Minor (Autumn 2018). This program is designed to explore with SPU undergraduates “the dynamic relationships between information, technology, and people,” as well as “the opportunities and challenges facing our [contemporary] information society.”

Event Information
