Welcome to Library Place - Issue 1 (Fall 2013)
Library Place, the newsletter of the Princeton Theological Seminary Library, debuts with this issue. Its purpose is to provide a point of contact between the library and those who turn to it for service and support.
Library Place will feature articles about library collections and services, users, events, exhibits, projects, digital initiatives, and outreach. We’ll showcase the people and programs that advance the mission and value of the library, whether staff or users. We’ll explore trends and technologies relevant to education, ministry, and scholarship. Our goal is to connect the library with your experience as one of its users. And we’d love to hear your comments!
Princeton Seminary marked its bicentennial year and entry into its third century with this new library. Through refreshed physical as well as virtual presence, we aim to renew Andrew Carnegie’s image of a library as “a never failing spring” nourishing life and thought. As one of the nation’s premier theological centers, we want to continue to play a constructive role in education and scholarship, intervening in the causes of ignorance, increasing access to knowledge, investing in collections, building relationships, cultivating the use of innovative technologies, and pursuing collaborative solutions.
Library Place will be available in print as well.
