Books@Atla Open Press (http://books.atla.com) seeks essays and chapters for publication in a new edited volume on the topic of special collections of religious and theological materials, serving not only to explore and reconstruct the historical record of what libraries and librarians have done, but also to uncover and articulate the values, strategies, and aspirations connected with such collections.Read more about New Edited Volume on Special Collections in Religion and Theology
Books@Atla Open Press publishes open access works on subjects at the intersection of librarianship and religious and theological studies that potentially impact libraries. We seek to provide resources that guide and support innovative library services and enhance professional development. Titles published by the Press will fall within three areas: Scholarly Editions, Association Editions and Reprints
Scholarly Editions represent new and creative research on topics that impact what theological librarians do and how they do it. Consideration and publication of works as Scholarly Editions require submission of formal proposals as detailed at https://books.atla.com/atlapress/about/submissions and are subject to the review and approval by an Editorial Board that oversees the Scholarly Editions.
Association Editions assist theological librarians in their day-to-day work and professional development, including white papers, handbooks, and other reference-type materials. These works are written by or at the direction of Atla’s staff with the assistance of committees, interest groups, task forces or outside experts.
Reprints are previously published print books that have value to the profession and are therefore deemed important to re-release as open access online editions. Reprints are selected at the discretion of Atla and are digitized and published in their original form with permission of the copyright holder where necessary.
Our Catalog is organized into Categories reflecting these three areas of publishing activity. Questions about Scholarly Editions should be directed to the Editorial Board at firstname.lastname@example.org; questions about Association Editions and Reprints may be directed to email@example.com.
