At the end of January, my post ““A Rationale for Integrating Christian Faith and Librarianship”…01.30.09” contained the conclusion from an essay titled A Rationale for Integrating Christian Faith and Librarianship by Gregory A. Smith which I found quite interesting and worth reading.
You can view an equally interesting slide presentation by Gregory A. Smith which I found today titled “The Core Values of Christian Librarianship: A Round Table Discussion” which will be fodder for future discourse. You can also read his 2002 essay The Core Value of Christian Leadership online.
Although I have not read it, I have been told there is another essay on a similar topic entitled “A Christian Approach to Intellectual Freedom in Libraries” by James R. Johnson worth reading in Christian Librarianship: Essays on the Integration of Faith and Profession by Gregory A. Smith and Donald G Davis.
