Digital Resources

The Wiggin Library subscribes to a number of electronic databases, which include access to WorldCat, a catalog of thousands of holding libraries across the globe, and various electronic journals available through FirstSearch or EBSCO. These titles are available only to current MLTS students and faculty, as well as alumni. 

Many of our electronic resources require a username and password. Some may require access only on the campus network. Contact the librarian to request logon information. 

EBSCOHost 

EBSCOHost gives you access to a large number of databases. The two most useful databases to which we have access are the the Religion and Serial databases from the American Theological Library Association Religion (ATLA) Database and Academic Search Complete. ATLA Religion Database with ATLA Serials combines an extensive index to journal articles, book reviews, and essays with thousands of full-text religion and theology journals. Academic Search Complete is a scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text database, with more than 8,500 full-text periodicals, including more than 7,300 peer-reviewed journals. For search tips contact the librarian.

OCLC FirstSearch

FirstSearch, a product from OCLC, allows you to look for books, articles, and more with a single search. FirstSearch results come from 13 databases including ArticleFirst, ERIC, WorldCat, and WorldCat Dissertations. For more information on the strengths of these databases, contact the librarian.
