ATLAS for Alumni

ATLAS FULL-TEXT E-JOURNALS AVAILABLE TO ALUMS

We are now able to provide our alumni/ae with access to the American Theological Library Association Serials database. ATLAS delivers the full-text portion of the information encompassed in the ATLA Religion Database, including more than 300 of the most prominent journals in the various fields of religious studies : Bible, church history, ethics, theology, pastoral studies such as preaching and counseling, archaeology, philosophy, mission and ecumenism, interfaith studies and world Christianity.

This expanded service uses a powerful and intuitive interface provided by EBSCO. This interface is considered the gold standard for database searching and document delivery.

TO REACH THE ALUMNI/AE LOGIN SCREEN, CLICK HERE.

If you are a Union (UPSem, UTS, Union-PSCE), PSCE or BTSR alum and you do not yet have an alumni/ae login, you will need to email our Reference Librarian, Paula Skreslet, to obtain the user ID and password. She will check your alumni status and then reply to your email with the necessary information. Because this is confidential, we cannot post it here.

TUTORIAL NOW AVAILABLE — CLICK HERE.

There is a detailed tutorial offering instructions for the use of this database. You only need to remember to use the access instructions especially for alums.

For Users of The Text This Week :

If you use TextWeek to prepare lectionary passages, you will have direct access to the ATLAS articles that they recommend. When you choose an article to read, click on the “EBSCO ATLASerials Religion Collection” link, and use your alumni login if prompted. You should be able to view the article as a PDF file.

Please feel free to contact Paula Skreslet with any problems or questions.

This program is intended for alumni/ae of Union, PSCE and BTSR exclusively.
Participants may not share the username or password with others.
