Welcome from the Librarian

It is my pleasure as James Lenox Librarian to welcome you to this podcast series of the Princeton Theological Seminary Library. The intent of this series is to make audio and video files available that will bring the Library closer to you and enrich your virtual library experience. Podcasts will feature events, resources, and individuals from the Library and the academy offering instruction, commentary, and discussion that we hope will enhance your life and work.
