Periodically, the Educational Programming department of the University Libraries will sponsor educational workshops that are open to the public. Below is the current list of upcoming workshops.

Fall 2017: "The Reformation and Jewish Literature"

Come view the University Libraries' Reformation exhibit and listen to special speaker Dr. Robert Duke! Dr. Duke is dean of Azusa Pacific University's School of Theology and Azusa Pacific Seminary, as well as a professor in APU's Department of Biblical and Religious Studies. He will be speaking on the impact of the Reformation related to Protestantism, Catholicism, and Judaism.

Workshop attendees will also have opportunity to view the Reformation exhibit and tour Special Collections.

To recognize the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation, the University Libraries' Special Collections has opened an exhibit in the Hugh and Hazel Darling Library, "Igniting and Inspiring Change." Items on display include a Latin Vulgate Bible, an original King James Bible and King James' signature, and other significant books from the time period of the Reformation (1517-1648) and related to its major figures like William Tyndale, Martin Luther, and John Calvin.
