In early 2014, Corban Reference/ Instruction Librarian Garrett Trott became the new editor-in-chief of “The Christian Librarian,” a bi-yearly publication of the Association of Christian Librarians.
In June, the ACL published its first issue with Trott at the helm and he is already planning for many more. “The Christian Librarian” publishes articles, provides a membership forum, and encourages writing. Past issues have included the Christian interpretation of librarianship, theory and practice of library science, bibliographic essays, reviews and human interest articles relating to books and libraries.
As editor-in-chief, Trott is responsible for soliciting articles from ACL members and considering them for publications. In addition to collecting articles, he is the primary editor and works to develop the journal’s theme and basic design and oversee a team of copy editors and designers from universities across the country.
The next issue of “The Christian Librarian” will be printed in fall 2014.
