Theological Libraries Celebrate

Students and employees of PTS recently enjoyed a pizza luncheon to celebrate National Theological Libraries Month.

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 sponsored a luncheon for employees and students. Library staff provided tip sheets on library research and other topics, as well as chances to win gift certificates to Cokesbury BookStore and QuikTrip Convenience Stores.  

This is the fourth consecutive year that Phillips has held a TLM celebration for students. “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 projectslibrarian for PTS, who has coordinated the celebration for the past four years. 

Continuing the tradition started last year, the library, once again, included the entire PTS community in the TLM celebration. PTS professors, staff, and guests joined the students at the pizza luncheon and had the opportunity to enter a drawing for QuikTrip gift certificates.

“The luncheon and prize drawing were a very enjoyable way to strengthen relationships between library staff and the rest of the PTS community. It is always important to us to reinforce our commitment to provide a hospitable and accessible environment for the entire PTS community and guests,” commented Sandy Shapoval, director of the PTS Library.

The PTS Library boasts 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.
