Developments in online resources are still in-progress. For now, see our journal access currently available.
Westminster Access to ATLA Journal Resources
What it is: We are excited to offer our online students access to the massive ATLA Religion Database (ATLA RDB) which offers 2.1 million records, including almost 2000 journals and over 775,000 individual articles from all fields of religion.
What it isn’t: This database is a collection of diverse writings from a variety of theological perspectives and traditions. With this being the case, articles within this database do not necessarily (and often will certainly not) be in alignment with the theology of Westminster Seminary.
