This session is a followup conversation to the presentation at the 2013 Conference titled, "Teaching Analytical Reading Skills to Seminary Students". This conversation will enable participants to share ways they have found to utilize some of the ideas from the presentation, discuss difficulties, and brainstorm about other methods. If anyone wants to join this conversation who was not able to attend the 2013 presentation, they can read the article in the Conference Proceedings or they can email me for copies of the materials.
This conversation follows up on a Core Competencies panel in 2012 and a Core Competencies Conversation in 2013 by identifying the key elements in a draft of a statement of core competencies and/or credentials useful to ATLA members in recruiting or developing well-qualified theological librarians.

The works of Barber/Krauss, Bollier/Stewart, Pazmino, and Yaghjian, are among the more recent examples of introductions to theological bibliography and research. Although diverse in their particular features, these works bear a resemblance to each other in the ways that they introduce their audiences to theological reading, research, and writing. This conversation group will discuss what are the most helpful books in this genre (not limited to the examples listed above), identifying both enduring strengths, and also needed improvements or new options within the changing contexts of religious and theological studies.
