NC Religion at The American Theological Library Association

The Duke Divinity School Library Staff attended the American Theological Library Association Annual Conference in The Queen City of Charlotte, North Carolina last week. Project Coordinator, Shanee Murrain presented a poster "The Religion in North Carolina Digital Collection: Content, Audience, and Presentation. The presentation featured background about the project planning grant, scope and audience, organizing content and workflow, copyright analysis, incidences of impact, digital output and Black Church identity politics as reflected in meeting minutes and church histories. Everyone wanted to know about the grant! Fellow librarians shared their interest and excitement about the digital collection. A few even asked Shanee to consult on their archival programs.
They are all so engaged!

Overall the conference was a success! The poster presentation and attendance at the Methodist Librarian's Fellowship meeting gave us the opportunity to share with and learn from a variety of theological libraries accessing their own collections for mass digitization.
