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

Library of Latin texts

Contains texts from the beginning of Latin literature (Livius Andronicus, 240 BC) through to the texts of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). It covers all the works from the classical period, the most important patristic works, a very extensive corpus of Medieval Latin literature as well as works of recentior latinitas (1501 to 1965). The complete works of writers such as Cicero, Virgil, Augustine, Jerome, Gregory the Great, Anselm of Canterbury, Bernard of Clairvaux, and Thomas a Kempis can thus be consulted. The texts have been taken from the Corpus Christianorum series and from many other leading editions. Searchable by period, author, title, century, and Clavis (CPL). Using any of the preceding will produce a list of options from which to choose. The choices work together--for example if Plautus is chosen under Author, the options under Title will be works by Plautus. Formerly titled CLCLT (Library of Christian Latin Texts). Brepolis

Medieval family life

Brings together the manuscripts and printed editions of the papers and letters of five families from 15th century England in a searchable, digital format.

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.

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.
