Theological Libraries Month Contest

We see collaboration as an essential part of being a librarian, scholar, and student. It’s impossible to do research in a vacuum. Librarianship is inherently a collaborative profession. Therefore, one of our core values is collegiality and collaboration. This value is especially important in the changing landscape of theological librarianship. It’s now more important than ever to partner and network with others inside and outside librarianship.

How is your library creatively collaborating across departments and with other libraries? How are you engaging with your faculty and administration? How are you encouraging your patrons to collaborate? Share your story on Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #CreativeCollab and #TLM2017 or submit your ideas to the Newsletter by emailing

Tell your story for a chance to win a $25 gift card.​

Let’s share and inspire one another in finding those creative collaborations and valuable partnerships.
