Atla Religion Database

QuickSearch provides article-level indexing of many scholarly journals, but misses a lot of the indexing provided by the three EBSCO databases listed here.  All three can be searched together at the same time by selecting from the list that displays when you select Choose Databases.

Atla Religion Database is an index to scholarly journal articles, book reviews, and collections of essays published since the nineteenth century in all fields of religion. Journals representing all the major religious faiths, major denominations, and numerous language groups are included.  Atla Religion Database is produced by Atla (formerly known as the American Theological Library Association), an organization dedicated to advancing the study of religion and theology.

Historical Abstracts

Historical Abstracts is an index of scholarly literature covering world history from the 15th century to the present. It covers all countries and regions, excluding the United States and Canada (for those countries, see America: History and Life). Subjects covered include world history, military history, women’s history, history of education, and more. Resource types indexed include journal articles, magazines, books, and dissertations. The database includes indexing for over 2,300 journals in 40 languages published since 1863.  A special feature of this index and America: History and Life is the ability to limit searches by the historical period that is the subject of the article being indexed.

America: History and Life


America: History and Life is an index of scholarly literature published since 1895 on United States and Canadian history and culture from prehistoric times to the present. Subject areas covered include history, anthropology, art, cultural studies, genealogy, literature and folklore, popular culture, sociology, women’s and gender studies, and more.
