Article Databases

A database is an electronic collection of journal articles, usually for a specific academic discipline. These databases allow you to search for articles across the many journals all in one place and have full text access to PDFs of the articles. To find an article, follow these steps.

From the home page, find the "Databases" link in the blue links bar below the search box. This will take you to the database list. You can use the "Subjects" drop down menu to choose "Theology" databases. However, the most common and most recommended is the ATLA Serials Plus Religion Database. Others could include the APA PsychArticles for counseling and behavioural science topics.There are also other book and reference databases in the Theology list.
