Bulletin of the Association of British Theological & Philosophical Libraries
Vol. 1 (1974-1987)


ABTAPL is the Association of British Theological and Philosophical Libraries, an organisation formed to help those working in libraries containing theological, philosophical and related materials by sharing information and experience. ABTAPL provides for its members an informal network for consultation, advice and support in both individual and continuing professional problems. The Bulletin is published by the ABTAPL as a forum for professional exchange and development in the fields of theological and philosophical librarianship. It is published three times a year (March, June and November) and now has a circulation of approximately 300 copies, with about one third of that number going to libraries in Europe, North America and the Commonwealth.
