As you are working on research for your School of Divinity courses, please let me know if I can help in any way! Please feel free to email me and we can discuss your questions over email, or you can book a time for a Zoom meeting on my calendar. My regular office hours will be Thursday 3-5p via Zoom. Please email me for the link or access the link from the weekly School of Divinity Link email.
In the space below, I will add links for the most useful resources which are accessible remotely. This information will be updated as I learn of new resources, so check back when you can. Please contact me if you find a resource you think could benefit other students!
Don't forget that ZSR already has access to thousands of ebooks and millions of online articles through our regular resources in the library catalog and databases such as Atla and JSTOR. Oxford Biblical Studies Online will be particularly helpful right now, and see the Reference tab above for links to other online reference resources. Additionally, we have access to thousands of streaming films and online images if you need multimedia resources. Get tips on finding and using these resources from the tabs above.
And last, but not least, remember to cite your sources! The Turabian style guide can help you with formatting citations for the sources you find.
Stay healthy and well!
Two Tech Tips:
