MarkForBlogThis is going to be a shorter blog, as I am actually writing this from my hotel room in Chicago at the ATLA (American Theological Library Association) Conference. I am looking forward to all of the presentations and meetings that are going to be happening, and feel that I am going to learn a lot that will help me help your experience at the library, including several different lectures/presentations on how to help theological students with research, and how to be a better reference librarian. I will tell everybody all about it next week.

I am going to mention a book that I did just finish reading, which I thought was very intriguing. I actually first heard of the book on the Catholic Herald’s website, underneath their book review section. The book’s name is “Money, Greed and God: Why Capitalism is the Solution and Not the Problem,” by Jay W. Richards. You can see a good review of it here.  I just want to add that, along with being an intriguing and eye-opening read; it is well researched and can provide a person with many more books/articles/websites/reports to look at if they are interested in this topic. 

As always, if you have any ideas and comments for things I could change, please let me know. These are always appreciated, anything I can do to make this better I will strive my best to accomplish.
