The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), Association of Christian Librarians (ACL), and other librarian associations strongly encourage the need to consult expert resources in reference transactions, and consistently rank scholarly publications as the most authoritative. This article applies and examines these reference principles in the context of biblical studies’ librarianship practices, and in light of the Bible’s own teachings. It concludes by encouraging Christian librarians to investigate the contents of recommended Bible resources, and challenges them to assess librarianship methodology using Scripture as a starting point.
