ATLAS collection update

ATLAS collection

The American Theological Library Association (ATLA) has updated ATLAS, its online collection of major religion and theology journals selected by leading religion scholars and theologians.

ATLA recently updated the ATLAS image server for this release, which increases content with 561 journal issues, six times more images than in previous quarterly updates. It also introduces three new ATLAS titles: Perspectives in Religious Studies and Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics (preceded by Annual of the Society of Christian Ethics), both represented in ATLAS from their inception, and more than 45 years of AFER (African Ecclesial Review).

Other additions to note are the completion of the retrospective imaging of Zygon back to volume one, the addition of 91 issues of the Journal of Evangelical Studies, and 32 issues of Church History.

In November, along with the scheduled update of image content in the current ATLAS database, ATLA’s direct ATLAS subscribers will have an opportunity to access and search an alpha-version with full-text. ATLA subscribers of ATLAS will be able to test-drive full-text functionality, as well as to contribute suggestions and comments to the ATLAS development team. ATLA will provide details to these subscribers on how they can access the alpha-version of ATLAS with full-text searching.
