Through a generous grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc., (in cooperation with the American Theological Library Association) alumni can now access ATLA Serials® (ATLAS®), an online collection of full-text articles from more than one hundred seventy major religion and theology journals selected by leading religion scholars and theologians.
Alumni may obtain the login and password information by contacting the library at 901.761.1354 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through the ATLAS database, alumni can research the history of a topic from as early as 1924 to the present through more than 300,000 articles and book reviews combined. Currently, researchers are able to use ATLAS as a search tool to retrieve PDFs of the pages from more than one hundred and seventy different journals, with fully searchable text that allows for keyword proximity and citation set searches.
ATLAS is updated quarterly, in February, May, August, and November.
