Experiences Want to Be Shared

Submitted by Leslie A. Engelson, Editor-In-Chief, Theology Cataloging Bulletin

The editorial board of the Theology Cataloging Bulletin is looking for first-person accounts of projects, training, or learning experiences that would be of interest to other technical services librarians for the Testimony column.

Submissions should be 1,000-2,000 words and can include images with appropriate copyright permission and attribution. The TCB had been a member-only publication since 1992 and just launched as an open access journal in January on the OJS platform in the hope of attracting a larger audience and sharing our news with others.

Previous topics in this column have included:

  • An explanation of linked data
  • A tour of a library in Mexico
  • A report of a class on paper marbling
  • A description of a special collection cataloging project
  • A demonstration of how to use open access resources for authority work
  • An account of an internship

This is a great opportunity for aspiring authors to dip their toe in the world of publishing. Submissions are editorially reviewed and must be well-written, coherent, and to the point. Authors retain all rights under a CC-BY-NC license. Readers of the column are practitioners who want to hear about what you are doing or learning.

More information about submissions, as well as the current issue, can be found at https://serials.atla.com/tcb/index.
