Featured Alumni Resources

ATLAS for ALUM is an online collection of major religion and theology journals selected by leading religion scholars and theologians.

Currently, alumni are able to use ATLAS for ALUM as a search tool to retrieve articles in more than one-hundred different journals.

ProQuest Religion (Alumni Access) is an indispensable resource for religious studies programs and for anyone researching religious issues and perspectives. This resource presently has more than 220 journals, with many of them available in full-text.



Open Access Digital Theological Library

The librarians at Gordon-Conwell are proud to contribute to the Open Access Digital Library (OADTL). OADTL is the premier digital library of open access materials related to religion and theology. Currated by theologically trained librarians, this collection currently (as of June 2019) provides access to:

  • 194,191 e-books
  • 9,829,602 articles
  • 5,014 journals

OADTL has also gathered a list of free bibliographic and research databases related to the study of religion and theology. These resources are available in the A-Z Database List and categorized by subject. Research aids are also available — covering biblical languages and commentaries (with more to be added).

OADTL was featured in the journal, Theological Librarianship in October 2018.
