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.
Princeton Theological Seminary Library
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.
