ABTAPL directory

Theological and Religious Studies Collection Directory

This ABTAPL directory is a list of attributes of many ABTAPL member libraries. It is meant to assist in the process of “sharing information and experience, advice and support” between like-tasked information professionals, with the hope that the wheel may not be invented over and over again, and that we may support one another’s professional practice, service development and improving user experience.

You can browse the Library links below, or use the site search, at the top of the page, to find specific information.

If you would like your library to be added to the ABTAPL Directory, please fill in this Membership Questionnaire for the Directory and return it to Rachel Campion (rachel.campion@lkh.co.uk).
