ATLAS Is Now Finally Available

ATLAS Online is now finally made available to STM community.

ATLAS is "an online collection of major religion and theology journals selected by leading religion scholars and theologians. Users can read articles or research the history of a topic from as early as 1924 to the present. Currently, researchers are able to use ATLAS as a search tool to retrieve images of the pages in more than seventy different journals."

With more than 153,700 articles available, ATLAS is an indispensable tool and resource for any theological student and researcher.

While ATLAS has been a standard online resource for seminaries in the West for some time, it is not the case for us in Malaysia. Operating on a very tight budget, we often find it not feasible subscribing to ATLAS. Thanks to a generous donor, we are now able to offer this very important resource for our students, both full-time and part-time. We hope that this would enhance their learning experience. Of course, with this newly added resource, the expectation of the lecturers on the students would increase proportionately.

All STM students (including TEE students) should have received an email informing them of this facility. If you have not, please contact the library directly.

Enjoy ATLAS!

It is great that I am back on ATLAS. I downloaded some pdf for my John's assignments but before I could get hold of their citations, my subscription ran out even before the year was out.

No worries about the tag. I removed it.
