The ATLA Religion Database is an extensive resource for theological research. EBSCOhost, the company that manages the database, boasts that it “includes more than 620,000 article citations from more than 1,746 journals (575 currently indexed), more than 250,000 essay citations from over 18,000 multi-author works, more than 570,000 book review citations, and a growing number of multimedia citations.” In addition to this wealth or information, the Library also subscribes to ATLASerials, which provides “more than 380,000 electronic articles and book reviews” in full-text.
To help our users utilize this vast resource, we compiled a list (see below) of journals that are part of the Seminary’s collection in print and also included in the ATLA Religion Database/ATLA Serials. We still subscribe to some of these journals while others have been discontinued or are acquired on a semi-regular basis through donations. The date range in the third column of this list applies to what is available in the database. If there is a year with an open hyphen that means the journal is available up to the most current issue. To view our holdings in print, click on the link in the fourth column that says “OPAC Record”. These links will bring you directly to the record for that periodical in our online catalog.
We encourage users to take the following steps while using this database:
Access to the ATLA Religion Database/ATLA Serials is also available for alumni and students currently enrolled in courses who do not live on campus. Access to this database requires a username and password so please contact a librarian for that information. Interlibrary Loan is not available for alumni, but if you need something that is only available in print, we would be happy to scan and send the article or book review to you at no cost. Please contact a librarian if you have any questions.
