Dallas Theological Seminary Equipping Students with $14K-worth of Tools from Logos Bible Software
Dallas Theological Seminary and Logos Bible Software have entered into a partnership that is equipping all current DTS students and future graduates with free licenses of industry-leading Bible study tools from Logos Bible Software.
Bellingham, Washington (I-Newswire) September 9, 2013 - Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) and Logos Bible Software (logos.com) have entered into a first-ever partnership that brings theological resources to DTS students valued at $14,000. Dallas Theological Seminary, one of the largest non-denominational evangelical seminaries in the world, is providing Logos Bible Software to all of its current students and is underwriting this program through donor generosity and a small portion of the students' technology fee.
The DTS-Logos partnership is dedicated to equipping lifelong learners around the world with the best tools and training available. Mark Bailey, president of Dallas Theological Seminary, said, "We are thrilled to partner with Logos to provide tools that will tether our students to the text of Scripture." Rather than requiring students to purchase Logos Bible Software on their own, this new partnership enables every student in every degree program and income level to have access to the best tools and resources.
"Seminaries like DTS want to stay true to their biblical and theological roots, while adapting to the radical changes happening to publishing and education," said Mark Yarbrough, vice president of Academic Affairs for DTS. "Logos enables us to give our students the best resources available for a lifetime of faithful ministry."
Students who graduate from DTS with a master's or doctoral degree will be able to keep the software package for life. "We're excited about this collaboration," said Bob Pritchett, president of Logos Bible Software. "Students at DTS have access to great resources-but when they graduate they have to leave behind those resources at the Turpin-Mosher Library. But now, with Logos Bible Software, graduating students will have a core library that stays with them throughout their life and ministry."
The Logos Bible Software library
As the largest developer of Bible software, Logos publishes more than 36,000 electronic Bible study tools for customers around the world. DTS students will have access to many of those resources with the ability to add to their personal library with special academic pricing.
The custom library incorporates a modified version of the Logos Silver base package, along with key additions designed for graduate-level theological study. This includes technical linguistic works, as well as works by DTS faculty and alumni.
All students, all platforms
Dallas Theological Seminary is rolling out the software to over 2,000 students throughout September 2013. This includes packages specifically designed for DTS' Chinese- and Spanish-speaking students. Logos representatives will visit campus throughout the fall semester to provide custom training. Students can use Logos Bible Software on their desktop and laptop computers, mobile devices, and any computers with an Internet connection.
