Ohio Theological Library Association

OTLA is an electronic discussion list designed for theological librarians in Ohio. It is an unmoderated list established by the Ohio Theological Library Association, a regional group of ATLA. OTLA is not, however, an official agency of ATLA. OTLA is open to librarians and friends who are members of ATLA.

Sending Attachments

Attachments are permitted on OTLA; however, in order to reduce the risk of infection from attachments, it is advised that you paste information within messages if you can to avoid unnecessary attachments. If you need to include an attachment, as a courtesy to other readers, identify in the body of your message the nature of the attachment (such as, "I have attached a copy of the bibliography" or "Minutes from the meeting are attached").

Dealing with Problems

If you are unable to post messages or suspect that you are not receiving messages that have been posted to the list, send an email to the list administrator. At this time, OTLA is a low-volume list, so don't get too worried if you go a few days without a posting.


You can unsubscribe at any time by notifying the list administrator.​
