The link goes to the list of open access journals, but you can use the blog search to find other types of open access materials, such as books and manuscripts.

Digital Karl Barth library

Provides access to a full-text searchable database of Karl Barth's works in German and English including (as of this writing) "the entire corpus of Barth's Gesamtausgabe", Die kirchliche Dogmatik, the Church Dogmatics, and Other Writings. This is an ongoing project and more volumes can be expected to augment the current online collection over time. The great benefit of this electronic collection is its full text searchability, which facilitates a streamlined, "highly sophisticated" level analysis of the texts of Barth's work, unattainable in the print volumes. The volumes can be searched by tables of contents, by document characteristics, or by keyword through its search engine. Viewing the document files requires some adjusting. Once a particular HTML full-text file has been accessed, succeeding and preceding pages are navigated by means of barely discernable "Previous section" / "Next section" links at the top and bottom left and right margins of the page. This is a tremendous resource for students of Neo-Orthodoxy, Barth, or the history of Reformed thought in the 20th century. Alexander Street Press

Digital library of classic Protestant texts

The collection includes the theological writings of more than 300 Protestant authors, as well as a wide range of confessional documents, biblical commentaries, polemical treatises, and Bible translations. Published by Alexander Street Press (publishers of the Digital Karl Barth Library), this resource has the same interface and the same searchability options and benefits as the aforementioned work, together with its clunky page advancing interface. This is a great resource for anyone seeking accessible primary source material on mainline Reformation intellectual and clerical leaders of the period. Coverage is broad and ecumenically representative, with one glaring exception: no Anabaptist/ Mennonite representation whatsoever. If you are seeking primary sources in the Reformed, Lutheran, Anglican, Quaker, Unitarian/Socinian, or Arminian traditions, this is a fruitful resource to search. If you are seeking Anabaptist primary sources, you will need to look elsewhere. Alexander Street Press

Oxford handbooks online. Literature

"The literature section of OHO will include essays on most aspects of poetry, prose, verse, and drama in English, and will also include work on Film Studies. Its chronological range extends from around 1300 to the present day. Its principal focus is on writing produced in the British Isles and North America, but it will include a growing body of work relating to literature from other English- speaking regions of the world. Essays represent a variety of critical approaches (historical, formalist, theoretical), and seek to combine original scholarship with authoritative introductions to their topic. These are not simply guides to existing research but exemplary essays which explore new avenues for future work. The present scope of the collection reflects the range of the printed Oxford Handbooks, which offer particularly strong coverage of Shakespeare, early modern (1500-1700), modern, and American topics. As the resource grows this coverage will be supplemented in ways will produce a comprehensive and reliable guide to all areas of writing in English from the earlier Middle Ages to the present day"--Homepage

Patrologiae cursus completus. Series Graeca

Provides full-text access to the printed works of Greek Christian writers down to the Council of Florence (1438- 39). This is a collection of the writings of the church leaders who wrote in Greek, including both the Eastern "Fathers" and those Western Christians who wrote before the Latin takeover of the West in the third century. The texts are generally interlaced with one column of Greek and a corresponding column on the other side of the page that is the Latin translation. Where the Greek has been lost, such as in Irenaeus, the full text appears only in Latin, and the extant Greek fragments of the work are interspersed throughout the Latin text. This is a full- text library of resources rather than a full-text database. Using the “Control” and “F” keys will bring up a rudimentary search engine. But searchability extends no farther than author searching of the HTML links. Scrolling down the entry list is only slightly less efficient. Full text is in JPG format, which makes electronic text capture problematic. Not a challenge for the Greek and Latin literate per se, but those requiring translation apps will have to key in the text themselves. Coverage is from the 2nd century CE to 1438-39 CE.

Dwarfed in coverage scope by the Philosopher's Index, this resource does have some unique content (though PI overlaps the majority of coverage and provides a more substantial amount).
