I want to thank everyone who participated in this year’s ALABI meeting in Nashville, Tennessee. Over the course of the next few days, I will try to post some of the exceptional presentations that our speakers brought this year.
One of the presentations that we heard this year was from Paul Roberts, the Director of Patron Services at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Paul’s presentation was was entitled “From MySpace to OurSpace: Fostering Community through Patron-Centered Spaces,” and he has graciously provided his manuscript for our consumption. His topic was weighty, and I am very grateful to him for providing a manuscript for us to review.
