In the age of uncertainty, theological libraries must change from information gatekeepers on academic islands of the past to a culture that is fundamentally collaborative. We librarians can no longer rely on our own expertise stuck in what we have formerly known, with the concept that we have all the answers. Therefore, people need to treat people as people and not as tools to complete a task. People see themselves instead as a collaborator in the great endeavor of librarianship. Even though change is inevitable, the future is always unknown and that is what makes it exciting.
