New to the LibGuides Databases A-Z: Open Access Digital Theological Library (OADTL)
The mission of the Open Access Digital Theological Library (OADTL) is to make all open access content in religious studies and related fields discoverable to everyone, everywhere in the world through a single search experience for free forever.
As the initial phase of this mission, the Open Access Digital Theological Library (OADTL) has gleaned high quality content from hundreds of publisher sites, institutional repositories, museums, scholarly societies and public domain collections. The OADTL currently contains about 100,000 OA ebooks and several hundred thousand articles in religious studies. Highlights from the collections contain published books from Brill, de Gruyter, the Society of Biblical Literature and the University of Chicago among others. The collections also contain thousands of Ph.D. and D.Min. dissertations. The collections are growing quickly. The OADTL offers both simple and advanced searching for content. All content is fully cataloged by professional librarians.
The OADTL is proud to be the world’s only fully open access library running OCLC’s WorldShare Management System as its operating system. The searching, discovery and retrieval are truly sophisticated and reliable.
The sponsors of the OADTL are: Claremont School of Theology, Denver Seminary, Evangelical Seminary, Gordon-Conwell Seminary, Hartford Seminary, International Baptist Theological Study Centre (Amsterdam), Lexington Seminary and Singapore Bible College.
