The Chaplaincy Innovation Lab (https://chaplaincyinnovation.org/), founded at Brandeis University in 2018, is an organization that sparks practical innovation in spiritual care. One way the Lab does this work is by fostering greater awareness of chaplaincy as a major field of study in educational institutions and helping educators align curricula with on-the-ground needs in spiritual care today. This session presents the results of the March 2020 survey of Atla members on resources in chaplaincy and spiritual care in their institutions. Michael Skaggs, Executive Director of the Lab, will engage participants in an open, seminar-style discussion on what chaplaincy resources are available in Atla member libraries, how librarians can support faculty implementing spiritual care resources into syllabi and broader curricula, and how chaplaincy is evolving as a field of study. This session will also offer attendees the opportunity to identify potential areas of collaboration with the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab and how the Lab can be of service to Atla and its members. Attendees will be introduced to the online presence of the Lab and the resources it offers there, as well as paths to engagement.
