Douglas Gragg joined the Louisville Seminary faculty in 2005. Before that he was Head of Public Services and Reference Librarian at the Pitts Theology Library of Emory University in Atlanta. His eight-year tenure there followed service as an assistant professor of biblical languages and literature (1987-1992) at the Institute for Christian Studies (now Austin Graduate School of Theology) in Austin, Texas, and as a visiting theological educator, editor, and Bible translation consultant in eastern Europe (1992-1997).

Dr. Gragg is active in several professional societies, including the American Theological Library Association, on whose Publications Committee he currently serves. He recently completed a research project on information literacy in theological education with the support of the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion. A founding member of the International Association for the Cognitive Science of Religion, he is the editor of a comprehensive bibliography of the literature of that emerging research program. In his own current research, he is applying recent cognitive theories to analysis of the cultural and religious contexts of early Christianity.

“I am very grateful for the good work of my predecessors in library and IT services at Louisville Seminary and for the excellent staff with which I have the privilege to work. My aim is to build on the solid foundations they have laid in order to enhance further the Seminary’s reputation as a place where one can expect to find plentiful and diverse resources for teaching and learning, innovative use of the latest educational and research technologies, and expert information services.”
