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

Encyclopedia of women & Islamic cultures

Provides access to a specialist encyclopedia focused on women's studies and Islamic cultures. The title of this work intends a broader scope than it actually specifies. For this work isn't concerned only with women and women's issues in countries where Muslim culture has historically predominated, it is also concerned with issues where Muslim culture has been a significant minority presence within the domains of other majority faiths. It is further concerned with women as adherents and outsiders to Islamic faith in cultures where Islam has been a cultural influence. So this work covers an enormous amount of ground. It is not surprising, therefore, that the print version runs to five volumes with two supplements. Written primarily with the needs of the specialist researcher in mind, the articles may still be profitably mined by researchers with more general purposes in view. Searchable either by specific volumes or through its "Advanced Search" keyword interface, the researcher has the option of searching it like a database, or serendipitously, like a print encyclopedia.This resource should be useful to a wide cross section of researchers: students of women's issues in Islamic cultures, students of Islam as a minority culture, students of minorities in predominantly Islamic cultures...to name just a few. Covers all eras of Islamic civilization from the 7th century to the present. Brill

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.

Philosopher's index

Provides indexing and abstracts of journal articles, books, contributions to anthologies, and book reviews published worldwide since 1940. For access to the scholarly journal literature of Philosophy, this index is the most important available. Topics covered include aesthetics, axiology, philosophy of education, epistemology, ethics, philosophy of history, philosophy of language, logic, metaphysics, philosophical anthropology, metaphilosophy, political philosophy, philosophy of science, social philosophy, and the philosophy of religion. Most useful for researchers of philosophical topics, this resource is also worth consulting for researchers in systematic theology (e.g. Augustinian studies, Scholastic theology, Barthian studies), apologetics and philosophical theology, religious ethics/moral theology, and western intellectual history. Contains some full text. Comparatively limited (but effective) search features: does not have a scholarly journals limiter but does provide document type and linked full-text limiters, as well as a publication search feature (enabling searches within the contents of specified journal titles).

Philosophy documentation center collection

Provides full-text access to the contents of journals, book series, conference proceedings, and other publications in applied ethics, philosophy, religious studies, and related disciplines. Essentially this product brings together and makes accessible in one place, the contents of all titles distributed by the Philosophy Documentation Center. Titles subscribed by BU Libraries are full text accessible (retrospective to full text accessible or retrospective only full text accessible) unsubscribed titles are citation accessible only. The opening link defaults to a display page listing all titles available from the service. However, the resource is keyword searchable. And in "Advanced Search" mode (displayed only after a simple search has been run), title, text, author and abstract search options are available as well as a date range limiter. 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). Though not a first consult resource, still worth consulting for the researcher requiring comprehensive results. Philosophy Documentation Center

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. Includes some abstracts. Gale Cengage

Super enlightenment

Provides access to a digital collection of primarily eighteenth-century French language electronic texts of mythology, alchemy, science, divine arcana, and secret societies. The collection is the product of a working thesis on the part of the project"s coordinators, that rather than constituting a break with Enlightenment ideals, these semi-occultic themed treatises demonstrate a profound continuity with the vision and values of Enlightenment rationalism, despite transgressing the bounds of the sensible (humanly knowable) world. From the perspective of orthodox, main stream philosophical research, this is a small collection of philosophically marginal texts. At best, this is a narrowly focused specialist resource specifically tailored for a select coterie of researchers in mid-eighteenth to late nineteenth-century French intellectual history. Generally not worth consulting by the generalist philosophical researcher
