About the ATLA Religon Database

How do you find articles in periodicals, or essays within collected works, or book reviews?  The best indexing tool for this information in the field of religious studies is the ATLA Religion Database (RDB).  The ATLA-RDB is available to all users here inside the Library, and to authorized patrons remotely using any computer with internet access and a web browser, using the EBSCOHost interface.

In addition, ATLA-RDB provides full-text access to ATLAS Plus, an online collection of more than 500 major religion and theology journals chosen by leading religion scholars and theologians. Users are able read scanned images of the articles they select, directly through the database.
