IPSWICH, Mass. — December 7, 2017 — EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) announce a new offering, ATLASerials PLUS (ATLAS PLUS), and the enhancement of their existing offering, ATLA Religion Database (ATLA RDB). Both resources are available via EBSCO's EBSCOhost platform.
ATLAS PLUS provides more than 425 full-text journals in many diverse areas of religion and theology, with full-text content in 16 languages from more than 30 different countries. ATLAS PLUS includes all the titles in ATLA's original full-text product, ATLASerials (ATLAS) and offers an additional 100 full-text titles at launch.
In addition, ATLA is merging ATLA Catholic Periodical and Literature Index (ATLA CPLI) into ATLA RDB. Once a stand-alone product specific to Catholicism, ATLA CPLI content will enhance ATLA RDB with the inclusion of more than 500,000 additional records.
Brenda Bailey-Hainer, ATLA's Executive Director, observed, "The addition of ATLAS PLUS to the ATLA suite of products demonstrates our commitment to support worldwide scholarly communication in religion and theology. We will continue to add new content to both ATLAS and ATLAS PLUS that further expands the breadth and depth of our full-text coverage of the field."
