At the end of 2018, ATLA released an updated and new instance of Research in Ministry® (RIM®), the database for sharing and searching abstracts of papers and projects. The new database now allows authors, librarians, department chairs, and others to include new abstracts in RIM through a self-submission system. ATLA will no longer be entering these on behalf of participating institutions. During this workshop, participants will see a demo of the new RIM, including how to create an account, how to share new abstracts through the self-submission form, and how to search.
