The article presents information on Latin American Theological Information Network (LATIN). LATIN is the result of a number of voices arising from various sources. In the early 1990's concerns were stated about the need for creating a theological library network in the Latin American region. One of the goals for LATIN was to create an association of information professionals that would be concerned with theological information services in Latin America rather than being exclusively involved with the old, traditional library vision. The idea behind this was to find a way to coordinate library work and at the same time-share theological information. In 1996 Latin American theological librarians were invited to attend a meeting to consider a more formal way of uniting efforts. A number of institutions and librarians answered this invitation and met in that year.
