Purpose Statement

The Florida Theological Library Association (FTLA) is a regional organization of the American Theological Library Association (ATLA.)   It exists to promote cooperation and exchange of ideas among theological libraries in Florida. Membership is limited to institutional members of ATLA in the region.  All programs sponsored by FTLA are open to other librarians. FTLA meets four times a year. Through these meetings and less formal contacts engendered by such meetings, the organization seeks to foster professional growth, institutional cooperation and the dissemination and sharing of information.
