Index fingers

Some of my peers in ANZTLA have been busy beavering away on the new web-enabled version of the Australasian Religious Index (ARI). From 1989 until the present, it was published in hard copy, but is now available as an online resource. The database is an author and subject index covering over eighty religious and theological serials published in Australia or New Zealand and representing all religious traditions. Related areas of study such as history and sociology are also covered. ARI indexes articles, notes and book reviews in religious studies, theology and related fields in the humanities and social sciences. If you're so inclined, you will find this database to be a valuable research tool.

Is that you I see in the photo at Scots College, NZ? :)

Yes. That would be me. It's interesting that the majority of the ANZTLA's membership mirrors the demographic trends of the library profession as a whole, being predominately female and also middle aged and above.

Would it be the Tandy Radio Shack TRS-80 "Color Computer" (also called Tandy Color Computer, or CoCo) home computer launched in 1980?
