A unique and ambitious web-based theological resource was launched in Geneva on 23 September 2011 by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and Globethics.net. It aims to redress a global imbalance of access to research materials in theology and related disciplines.
The Global Digital Library on Theology and Ecumenism (GlobeTheoLib) contains several hundred thousand of articles, documents and other academic resources that can be accessed online free-of-charge by registered participants from anywhere in the world via Internet (www.globethics.net/gtl).
â€œGlobeTheoLib offers a new and creative opportunity to promote the sharing of theological perspectives between fast-growing churches in the global South as well as with churches and theological institutions in the North,â€ said the Rev. Dr Dietrich Werner, the international project coordinator for the WCC programme on Ecumenical Theological Education (ETE).
