I began teaching Theological Librarianship for Leep in the fall of 2005 at the request of the American Theological Library Association, which partnered with Illinois in developing the course as a model for offering professional development for people who are interested in entering theological librarianship or upgrading their credentials in that area. My teaching fields are advanced composition, American church history, and theological librarianship.
