17th-18th century Burney Collection newspapers

Search early newspapers, pamphlets, and "newsbooks" from the 1603 Hampton Court Conference of 1603 (published a year later in 1604) through items published in 1804. Materials are digitized and represent the private but extensive collection of the Reverend Charles Burney (1757 - 1817). Many of the pamphlets and broadsides Burney collected are the only samples of these specific materials surviving. Collection content is a bit eclectic - largely focusing on materials published in London, but Scotland and Ireland are represented, as are publications from Europe, India, Barbados, Jamaica, and the United States. Keyword searching may be combined with Basic and Advanced search features which provide limits by date, place of publication, title of publication, language, and section of the news publication. Also searchable in Gale's 19th Century British Libraries Newspapers database to get a more comprehensive view of British news industry and news publishing. Gale Cengage

Comprises an index of " journal articles, book chapters, bills, laws, court decisions, reports, books, audiovisuals, and news relating to bioethics and professional ethics." (Publisher's website). Maintained by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University, this resource has very limited full text accessibility (for non-Georgetown University users). Good source for citations to research literature of bioethics and professional ethics. But in most cases, accessing the text will require consulting other resources. Results processing options are limited; either save all results from search or print all results...no email option is available. The save results option is difficult to use. Despite its quirks, however, researchers requiring comprehensive bibliographies of research literature for work in the areas of professional and bioethics will want to consult this resource.

Religion & philosophy collection (Gale)

Provides a collection of (mostly) peer-reviewed articles, with some full text in HTML and PDF format covering studies in religion and philosophy, intended primarily for academic researchers. There is considerable overlap between this index and other religious and philosophical indexes currently subscribed. So this one is perhaps best used as a supplemental resource, where comprehensiveness of results is a prime concern. It does contain some unique material, but not in sufficient quantities to justify enormous time expenditure. This collection is part of the larger Academic OneFile database. So ostensibly, this resource can be dispensed with, and the mother database could be searched in preference. Sophisticated search features include: peer review limiter, full text limiter, publication title search, etc. It does not include a scripture search feature. Full text availability.

Religious and Theological Abstracts

Provides citation and abstract level access to a range of scholarly and non-scholarly journals in religion and theology. Christian content preponderates in indexing coverage, but coverage also includes a number of important Jewish scholarly periodicals and a fair number of scholarly journals covering other world faiths. The strengths of this database are its interdisciplinary coverage and its strong focus on scholarly journals in ministry studies. There is considerable overlap between this resource and other religion indexes in the areas of systematic theology, church history, philosophy, and biblical studies. And it provides no full-text access. So after locating relevant citations, the researcher will have to independently verify local availability in BU Library holdings by performing a journal title search in the catalog. Best used, therefore, as a second tier option for research in systematic, church history, philosophy, or biblical studies, where comprehensiveness of results is not imperative. However, for those researching topics in ministry studies, this is a resource of first resort. Its coverage of academic journals in ministry studies is deep, broad, and frequently unique. The search interface looks clunky but is actually reasonably sophisticated, giving the researcher a range of options including author, title, title/abstract, date range limiter, and journal title search features

US history collection (Gale)

Indexes and provides abstracts to articles in about 40 journals (scholarly and popular) in history. History is defined broadly to include journals covering folklore, ecology, religion, and archaeology, among others. Coverage dates are 1980 - present; as an example of how narrow their journal coverage is, the subject "Clinton, Bill" has only 114 results associated with it. This would be a good starting point for contemporary issues, or if the user has a very broad topic and isn't sure how to start. Better yet, the "Browse Subject" feature can help select or narrow down a topic. Once there is a focused topic, other article indexes can be used to get a fuller picture of the topic. Includes full text of many of the articles indexed. Gale Cengage
