John A. Bollier.

John A. Bollier, 82, divinity librarian and association director, June 27, 2010. Bollier's career, which combined ministry with scholarship, began at California State University, Northridge, where he was a reference librarian and bibliographer. In 1973 he was employed by Yale Divinity Library, New Haven, Connecticut, where he was assistant divinity librarian and also served two terms as acting divinity librarian and a year as acting head of the bibliography department of Yale's Sterling Library. Bollier's bibliographic instruction at Yale produced a book, The Literature of Theology: A Guide for Students and Pastors (1979). As aboard member of the American Theological Library Association, he played a key role in the reorganization discussions that led to a merger in 1992 of all ATLA-related boards into a single board of directors. After retirement from Yale in 1991, Bollier became director of development for ATLA. Also active as a pastor, he served congregations of the United Church of Christ during much of his career.
