ATLA Press Publishes ‘Teaching Religion in a Changing Public University’

Teaching Religion
Submitted by Matthew Collins, Monographs Editor in Chief 

The ATLA Press’s open monograph program is excited to announce the publication of a new book by Dr. Sandie Gravett, Professor of Religious Studies at Appalachian State University. Teaching Religion in a Changing Public University provides a much-needed overview of the teaching of religious studies in public universities, with a clear delineation of challenges and opportunities for the future. This new volume provides insights that are important for both faculty and librarians. Her analysis of the history of the field provides a good framework for understanding how we got to where we are now and what the future might hold. 

Call for Chapter Proposals – New Volume to Commemorate ATLA’s 75th Anniversary

ATLA Press

The Editorial Board of the ATLA Press Open Monographs Program is seeking proposals for chapters in a volume to commemorate the 75th anniversary of ATLA. Chapters in this volume will consider the questions: What do theological librarians need to be ready for as we move forward in the 21st century? What is happening at the intersection of these two trajectories: the changing nature of theological education and the changing nature of theological librarianship? The Editorial Board is looking for proposals that respond to these questions, particularly in relation to the history of ATLA.

The ATLA Press Monograph Editorial Board and guest editor Bobby Smiley invite interested authors to submit proposals for chapters in a new book to be published by ATLA Press entitled Information Literacy and Theological Librarianship: Theory & Praxis.

For librarians working in research, reference, and instruction, information literacy (IL) is foundational to their work. Since the advent of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, IL has been substantially reimagined both theoretically and in professional practice. While much attention and scholarship has focused on broad-based undergraduate education, there has been less work on information literacy for specific disciplines, such as theological and religious studies, or in library settings with unique curricular and professional needs.
