Join us for several webinars in the coming months! These webinars are hosted by ATLA and our partners as a way to foster the exchange of ideas within the theological librarianship profession and share information about important resources.

OCLC QuestionPoint
Tuesday, October 9 1pm CDT

As you know, your users’ information needs don’t end at the library door or during hours that the library is unavailable. QuestionPoint provides a complete virtual reference management system, integrating chat, e-mail, a reference knowledge base, reports and analytic tools to give you a complete view of reference activity. Expand your hours of service to offer live help anytime through membership in the 24/7 Reference® Cooperative.

webinars

ATLA’s fall webinar series will begin on Thursday, September 27 at 2:00 PM CT with Member Programs and Scholarly Communication Manager Christine Fruin leading a session on Open Access: Myths, Facts, and Acts. With Open Access Week coming in October, learn more about the myths surrounding open access. Think open access equals low quality, that it is expensive for authors, or that it requires publishing in an open access journal? These are just some of the myths that will be dispelled in this presentation, where participants will learn the facts about open access and actions that they and their faculty and students can take to maximize the reach and impact of scholarship. Please note, this session was offered at the 2018 ATLA Annual Conference and content may be repeated.

Submitted by Denise McFarlin, ATLA Meeting Specialist

The 2018 ATLA Annual Conference, Connection at the Crossroads: Creative Collaboration in a Changing Landscape, was held in Indianapolis, Indiana, June 13-16. Attracting 300 members, exhibitors, and international guests the conference was a tremendous success. With the help of the Local Host Committee, Robert Roethemeyer and Ken Boyd, we were able to capture all the best that Indianapolis had to offer. They showcased the downtown area and provided us with various options for exploration, which only complimented the great programming, speakers, and exhibitors during our stay. Our Local Hosts did a wonderful job on all the ideas and events that were implemented for our conference attendees.
