1:30-3:00 "Theological Librarianship in an Age of Religious Pluralism": We are living in an age of increasing religious pluralism. Whereas in the past the landscape was dotted with churches and synagogues, we now encounter mosques, temples, and sanctuaries of many religions. The purpose of this session will be to explore the growth of religious pluralism, particularly in the Philadelphia area. We will discuss how theological librarians are developing their collections in response to the growing religious diversity of our time.
Presenter: Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
