Overview and Training Sessions

The Center for Theological Writing (CTW) is hosting Bible Software Week from February 25 to March 5, showcasing the three major Bible software programs: BibleWorks, Accordance, and Logos. Representatives from these companies will be on campus to demonstrate their software to students.

During lunch (1-2pm) on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, a representative will give an overview of his software. Participants in the evening seminars (6-9pm) will be trained to use Logos (Monday) and BibleWorks (Tuesday). These evening seminars are free and open to the public. Accordance is offering a full-day, free training seminar on Saturday (9am-6pm), but registration is required. The following Tuesday, CTW tech expert David Landow will lead a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each program for particular purposes.
