On 28 November 2012 an important update to “A Temple Studies Bibliography” was placed online. In addition to many new titles included, the first part (A-K) was carefully proof read and thousands of minor changes made. As a result of the proof reading, other significant alterations were made in the entire bibliography. Plans are to put a monthly update online at the beginning of each month. Part 2 (L-Z) will undergo a similar proof reading in December.
We have had some people ask where the conference will be specifically located. It will be at Utah State University in Logan, Utah, at the Eccles Conference Center Auditorium on campus.
