From 2021 the RTC Library will primarily offer students and staff access to online journal databases through the Digital Theological Library (DTL).
The DTL provides access to over 21,000+ journal titles and 60,000,000+ articles in religious studies and related disciplines. Many of these are indexed and accessible through three main databases:
- JSTOR Religion Collections 1-3 (ebooks); Religion & Theology Collection (journals)
- Project MUSE Philosophy and Religion
- ProQuest One
The DTL can be found here, and student user guides will be available from Semester 1, 2021.
For those not studying at the college, the DTL also provides a large open access database – the OADTL which can be found here.
In addition to the DTL we offer access to two online journal databases both of which can be accessed through EBSCOHost. The databases include:
- ATLA Religion database with ATLASerials
- EBSCO Religion & Philosophy Collection
For access to any of these resources and for additional online journal subscriptions provided through the RTC Library please contact the librarian.
This database provides:
- full text is provided for more than 380,000 electronic articles and book reviews
- more than 620,000 article citations from more than 1,746 journals (575 currently indexed)
This database is produced by the American Theological Library Association.
With hundreds of full-text, scholarly journals, this resource provides an in-depth collection of resources covering topics such as world religions, major denominations, biblical studies, religious history, epistemology, political philosophy, philosophy of language, moral philosophy and the history of philosophy. Religion & Philosophy Collection provides coverage of key theological and philosophical resources spanning over 100 years.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RESOURCE:
National and state libraries within Australia and New Zealand offer a wonderful service which includes the provision of an excellent range of databases containing access to online journals including Proquest and JSTOR databases. Membership is free if you meet the membership qualifications, and is a great way to further enhance your study. For more information please see our guide here.
