Open Access DTL
As a co-owner of the Digital Theological Library (DTL), IBTS Centre 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.
