Jewish studies source

Provides comprehensive resources for the study of Jewish civilization and culture. Whereas the Index to Jewish Periodicals is strictly an index of periodical literature, this resource takes a more eclectic approach to its coverage of "the study of Jewish civilization from its historical origins to the present." Accessible within this resource are numerous full text biographies of prominent Jewish persons of current and historic renown, numerous full-text books, even an encyclopedia (Jewish Women in America). It also indexes a sizable number of academic journals and magazines, with some duplication of IJP (less than 50 %). Lots of good material, difficult to classify. Reasonably advanced search interface, including publication search feature, scholarly journals limiter, publication type and document type limiters. Does not possess scripture citation search feature despite indexing a considerable number of academic journals in Biblical studies. Contains abstracts. Good for supplemental bibliographic research in scripture studies, excellent for research in Jewish studies. EBSCOhost
