A publication from the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry hosted at Boston University School of Theology, motive (always spelled with a lowercase “m”) was the official magazine for the Methodist Student Movement from its founding in 1941 and, for a few years at the end of its life, for the entire University Christian Movement (UCM). The School of Theology Library took charge in the movement of digitizing this important publication that inspired an entire generation of religious activists. To explore motive Magazine, click here.
The School of Theology Library is involved is many other digital projects beyond the digitization of motive Magazine. These digital projects include A History of Missiology, a joint project between the School of Theology Library and the Center for Global Christianity and Mission. Several of our Chinese Christian Posters are a part of a larger online collection, viewable here. Included soon will be digital components to our library exhibitions, too. View more of the Theology Library’s digital collections here.
Library staff hosts a Wednesday Workshop Series, every Wednesday at 1pm in the Library Instruction Room (209). Learn about the vast array of services the library has to offer, from our databases, to requesting needed materials for research from libraries throughout the world, to how to sort your citations using Zotero or RefWorks. Furthermore, we have an entire workshop about plagiarism posted on our website!
