1,000 Women in Religion – Poster Session
Did you know that only 17% of the biographical subjects and 9% of the editors on Wikipedia are women? The 1,000 Women in Religion Project – a major initiative of the AAR/SBL Women’s Caucus – is working to raise up the under-recognized work of women in the world’s religious and wisdom traditions by adding 1,000 women in religion onto Wikipedia. This is a poster session will demonstrate this effort aimed at lifting up the work of women in religion in ways that reform the gender biases that shape our systems of knowledge production.

Agile Library Transformation Through the Use of Concept Mapping in Information Literacy Instructions: A Journey into Research-based Visual Inquiry
Integration of the ACRL framework into the Information Literacy curriculum have been a focal point of many instructional librarians in the recent years with the attempts to reconstruct and reevaluate Information Literacy approaches and to deeper integrate it into the curriculum.

This poster will discuss an application of the knowledge practices of the ACRL framework through the visual concept mapping process as part of the search strategy assignments during Information Literacy sessions. Due to the versatility and adaptability of the concept map, it can be successfully applied in a variety of the educational contexts. This poster will demonstrate how visual concept mapping, being an authentic and meaningful learning tool, can be integrated into the search strategy assignment, allowing students to express their research topic more creatively, thus facilitating more productive searching techniques and iterative process of knowledge construction.

Using Agile core principles and values, this poster will show how concept mapping can become a valuable tool for transformation of the theological libraries by promoting students’ creative expression and facilitating their engagement in the classroom through a more relevant learning experience.

Defining Digital Theology: Barthian Reflections on the Role of Open Access and Electronic Publishing in the Theological Toolkit
As a Student member of the Atla Press Coordinating Council, the presenter has spent the past eight months evaluating, developing, and implementing digital tools to support the Press' initiatives in open access scholarship. This session frames those efforts in the context of theology's status as a "minor participant" (Hutchings, 2015) in the digital humanities as well as the emergence of a trans-disciplinary domain increasingly identified as “digital theology” (Phillips, 2014). Drawing on Anderson’s (2018) analysis of theology’s disciplinary distance from the main body of digital humanities work, the presenter outlines a case for the distinctive primacy of digital publishing tools and open access commitments in digital theology, as compared with the broader suite of research tools and methods that constitute the “cultural capital” (Schroeder, 2016) of digital humanities as generally understood. Particular attention is paid in this regard to Karl Barth’s vision of a “proclamation-centered” (Hector, 2015) theological method as the basis for an ecclesiological critique of closed access publication models, in addition to the use of other aspects of Barth’s thought as lenses for evaluating the limitations of present digital humanities toolkits for theological purposes and the means by which such limitations might be overcome.

Fox @ the Fireside: Using Strategic Marketing & Outreach to Foster Authentic Scholarly Conversations in the Library
This session highlights the strategic marketing, intentional outreach through liaisons, and event planning that went into developing "Fox @ the Fireside," shares about the program, and invites conversations about other opportunities that might exist for libraries to host and engage in scholarly discussions around campus. Fox @ the Fireside is an event hosted by the George Fox University librarians each semester, designed to showcase the intellectual and creative output of a campus community member or group (student, staff, faculty) and invite the university community to participate in conversation centered around a topic of campus-wide interest. Past programs have showcased art, books, and even LEGO® creations! Through this event, we have created a hospitable, inviting, inclusive space for conversation that furthers the library's mission to be a place for holistic connection, innovative creation, and authentic contribution.
