Over the past decade, many Atla member institutions have become increasingly religiously diverse. From larger actions like starting new inter-religious programs or partnering with other institutions to smaller steps like changing branding and programming, many institutions have actively sought to become more ecumenical and/or inter-religious and attract more students from religious traditions beyond the institutions' particular historical traditions. Given this reality, how can librarians at these schools adapt to serve their increasingly religiously diverse students better? What do librarians whose institutions are moving in more ecumenical or inter-religious directions need to consider? From collection development to reference and instruction, this panel will reflect on this topic as the panelists raise important questions and provide helpful practical advice based on their experiences at their own institutions.
