American Theological Library Association - ATLA Religion Database
October 2016

The American Theological Library Association (ATLA) hired Imagistic president Kevin Howard Goldberg to research potential technology solutions and to generate a business-centric technology solution and scope document.

The ATLA Religion Database is the premier online index of citations covering journal articles, book reviews, and essay collections in all fields of religion. In an effort to improve internal operations, the ATLA team engaged Kevin to review the existing system, to assess a few proposed solutions, and through an understanding of the various options, create a final set of project requirements.

"The ATLA administrative system is built on headless Drupal 7, so the final solution will most likely be a custom Drupal module," Kevin explained. "It will be designed and built to seamlessly fit into the existing infrastructure and to automate a very time-consuming manual process, allowing ATLA staff to be much more effective and efficient in their time spent."

The requirements process is expected to be done by year's end with development commencing in early 2017.
