Notes from the Road: University of Toronto

University of Toronto
Submitted by Roger Morales, ATLA Member Programs Librarian

While attending the Association of Asian Studies (AAS) Annual Conference in Toronto, Canada, I had the pleasure of visiting various great libraries within the University of Toronto library system. For those who are not familiar with the University of Toronto, the university operates under a similar model to the European organization system where colleges exist under the larger umbrella of The University of Toronto.

I made it just in time for one of the last snowfalls of the season typical of this time of year. Despite some snow and winds, I toured the Gerstein Science and Medicine Library and six libraries at member schools of the Toronto School of Theology (TST) including: Emmanuel College Library, Caven Library at Knox College, Regis College Library, Kelly Library at University of St. Michael’s College, and John W. Graham Library at Trinity and Wycliffe Colleges.

While in Los Angeles for the Code4Lib 2017 conference, I had the pleasure of riding an Amtrak train down the coast to visit the Franciscan School of Theology (FST), and ATLA Member Institution located in Oceanside, California. I was there to meet with their Library Director, Carl Adkins. FST is the only remaining Franciscan seminary/theology school in the United States.

Notes from the Road: California Dreamin’

Submitted by Roger Morales, ATLA Member Programs Librarian

While in the Los Angeles area for the SCATLA meeting I was able to visit the libraries at four institutions: Concordia University, Logos Evangelical Seminary, University of the West, and International Theological Seminary.

The first visit was to the library at Concordia University, nestled in the hills of Irvine, CA. As one walks into the library, there are plenty of study spaces available to students in the form of tables and recliners. Laura Guzman, Public Services Librarian, and Ramez Mikhail, Information Services Librarian, gave me a wonderful tour of the building, which includes the writing center.
