The catalogue of the DTL is open access, but access to the content is limited to students, staff and faculty of the co-owning institutions. The DTL contains more than 300,000 electronic books and subscribes to hundreds of journals, either directly, or through one of the 60 databases. Licensed databases include collections from ProQuest, JSTOR, Project Muse, Oxford Scholarship Online, Gale and many more.

As a co-owner of the Digital Theological Library (DTL), IBTS is also one of the co-sponsors of the Open Access Digital Theological Library (OADTL). The mission of the OADTL is to curate high-quality content in religious studies and related disciplines from publisher websites, institutional repositories, scholarly societies, archives, and stable public domain collections. The OADTL uses the world’s most advanced integrated library system (ILS) for cataloguing and discovery. This system, OCLC’s WorldShare, makes content easily discoverable and retrievable. The OADTL is staffed by professional librarians and curates content without regard for theological or confessional perspective. It is hoped that the increased access to high-quality religious studies content will serve scholars and students of religion.
The OADTL is free and may be used by anyone with a free ID. Please visit the OADTL here: http://oadtl.org.
