ATLA Press - ATLA Summary of Proceedings

The annual ATLA Summary of Proceedings is a historical record of the Annual Conference of the American Theological Library Association.

This open access publication includes summaries of the pre-conference professional development workshops, reports of business meetings and conversation groups, texts or programs from worship meetings, and the full text or abstracts of plenary sessions, papers, posters, and workshops presented during the conference.
