Exciting New Developments at NBTS’ Gardner A. Sage Library!
February 28, 2018
As of Thursday, March 1, 2018, Dr. John Coakley will be serving as our Interim Director of The Gardner A. Sage Library. Dr. Coakley is on site for ten hours per week, supervising library staff, being publicly present in the library, helping the staff to provide library services to students and other patrons, and representing the library as a member of Administrative Council and Faculty Council. A formal search for a permanent director has been launched.
Also, while remaining in his part-time role as Director of the Reformed Church Center at NBTS, Rev. James Brumm has been hired to further develop both our Center for Theological Writing and NBTS Archives. Rev. Brumm will move into this increased role on March 15th. He will begin working with the library staff to equip NBTS seminarians for the rigors of theological writing, analytical reading, and critical thinking for theological education. As the Director of the Seminary Archives, in consultation with the Archives of the RCA which is also housed in the Sage Library, Rev. Brumm will work to collect, preserve, and provide access to the archival materials of NBTS.
