Welcome from the Librarian
It is my pleasure as James Lenox Librarian to welcome you to this podcast series of the
Princeton Theological Seminary Library. The intent of this series is to make audio and
video files available that will bring the Library closer to you and enrich your virtual
library experience. Podcasts will feature events, resources, and individuals from the
Library and the academy offering instruction, commentary, and discussion that we hope
will enhance your life and work.
