Hekman Library as a Resource for Authors
Through the years, authors (Calvin and non) have sought the expertise of Hekman librarians as they ferret out obscurities on the way to publishing a book, book chapter, or journal article. Here are some examples of help given by library staff, from checking authors' dates to getting permission for a photograph to receiving interlibrary loan materials.
Lifting Hearts to the Lord: Worship with John Calvin in Sixteenth-Century Geneva, edited by Karin Maag (image used from Meeter Center Rare Book Collection)
The Gilded Chalet: Off-piste in Literary Switzerland, Padraig Rooney (use of Hekman Digital Archive images)
The End of Days: African American Religion and Politics in the Age of Emancipation, Matthew Harper (thanks for use of the collection)
A New Gospel for Women: Katharine Bushnell and the Challenge of Christian Feminism, Kristin Kobes Du Mez (assistance with interlibrary loaned materials)
Autumn: A Spiritual Biography of the Season, edited by Gary Schmidt and Susan M. Felch (tracking down "elusive authors")
Other examples of help given might be tracking down permission for a photograph, hunting for a complete citation (when the author just has a partial one), or finding the attibution for a quote that an author wants to use.
