Index Theologicus is online

My librarian (Alan) e-mailed me with news of a wonderful free online resource. It is a new index to theological journal literature developed by the University of Tübingen – functionally an alternative to the ATLA Religion database. However, the following link takes you only to a trial version; for the complete version we will have to wait a little longer.

It is called Index Theologicus, and indexes journal literature as well as articles in festschriften and other similar multi-authored monographs, and conference papers. The glorious bit is that I don’t need to physically go to Tübingen library anymore to do an extensive search on articles.

Alan also writes that ‘the development team at Tübingen are actively encouraging visitors to the site in order to provide feedback and suggestions that can be fed into the development process’.

The URL is:

Is there any way to view the articles for free?

Hi Matthew, not that I know of. This is a tool for finding articles, rather than for accessing them. Perhaps some of them are free online, but I doubt there is a straight-forward link from the Index.

I'll have to check this out. I have access to ATLA from home for free through my school. I use it all the time, probably one of the best resources a student of theology can access.
