National Theological Libraries Month
Philips TheologicalSeminary (PTS) recently celebrated Theological Libraries Month with week-long activities in the library joined by faculty, staff and students.

Theological Libraries Month (TLM) is a time set aside by the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) to highlight the vital role libraries play in theological education. As a participant in TLM, the PTS library provided cookies and punch during the week as well as a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Cokesbury, a Christian bookstore; and $10 gift certificates to QuickTrip, gas and convenience stores, were also available to win.

This is the fifth consecutive year that PTS has held a TLM celebration for the Phillips community. "TLM is a great opportunity to generate awareness of library resources and services while creating a welcoming environment for students during a particularly hectic time of the semester," said Mary Coniglio, reserves and special projects librarian for PTS, who has coordinated the celebration for the past five years.

The PTS Library boast more than 90,000 bound volumes and extensive files of periodicals and other non-book materials. Students also have 24/7 access to full-text journal databases, including ATLA serials and New Testament and Old Testament abstracts. As part of Phillips' commitment to support the continuous spiritual and educational enrichment of pastors and other leaders in the church, the Library offers special borrower's privileges to local clergy and their staffs.
