Library databases

Library databases typically cover publications in broad subject areas like religious studies or classical studies. Most of these lead you to literature published by scholars. Still other databases contain collections of primary sources such as original ancient texts, newspapers, letters, and videos.

The Library subscribes to over 400 databases. You can search or browse by the database name or filter by broad subject area (e.g., Classical Studies) or source type (e.g., Primary Sources) using the dropdown menus.
