I don’t lose a lot of sleep over this question but the fact remains that I think about it at odd times: How do we get good online resources out to our patrons? I wrote earlier this fall about the Depth and Breadth of our periodical collection. I’d like to emphasize the many online, full-text options that are available to you.
To find serial content: look for a journal in our A-Z list. Some of the titles we’ve added access to this fall are:
· Ecclesiology: Journal for Mission ,Ministry, and Unity
· Horizons in Biblical Theology
· Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus
Or look for articles in one of these databases (use HomeLab if off-campus):
· ATLA Religion Database (also includes ATLAS)
ATLAS is one of our very best resources. This acronym refers to the Full-text journal articles that are available through the American Theological Library Association’s Religion Database. “Serials” is one of those library-geek-speak terms for literature that comes out periodically, or serially.
This month’s ATLAS report from ATLA noted that over 8, 050 articles and reviews were added with the November update. Here are three of the 11 new titles that were added:
· Christianity and Literature, by Pepperdine University
· Ecotheology, by Equinox (Continued by Journal for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture)
Don’t limit yourself by just looking for resources in the Library’s collection (MARTIN). Try one of our serial options. Be sure to use your HomeLab account if you are accessing these resources off-campus.
