The amount of religious and theological material available on the Internet is enormous and can be daunting. Are you finding the information you need?

This valuable book will assist theological librarians, instructors, researchers, and others in making sense of the vast amounts of religious and theological information available today on the Internet. It provides a general overview of what's out there and specific examples that you can access as you read.

Beginning with a thorough discussion of information technology and theological libraries, Theological Librarians and the Internet: Implications for Practice compares and contrasts the state of the field in 1990 with the situation that theological librarians face today. Then you'll learn how theological libraries are beginning to utilize Web catalogs to improve access to their unique collections and how the major gateways to these catalogs can be accessed. This unique book also provides you with predictions for the future of Web OPACs.

Theological Librarians and the Internet is filled with information on:
  • electronic journals in religious studies
  • Web-based online catalogs in theological libraries
  • theological distance education
  • Christian art on the Internet
  • homiletics and liturgy on the Internet
  • Web site design
  • a Web-based tutorial on Judaism
Theological Librarians and the Internet will familiarize you with the creation and structure of the Wabash Center Guide to Internet Resources in Religion. It will also instruct you in using the Internet in religious studies courses and show you how to design a user-friendly Web site for your library so that all of your patrons can navigate it efficiently. No one interested in finding religious information on the Web should be without this volume!
