Blakley Library Resources for Biblical Study and Scholarship
Click here for books of interest for Biblical scholarship recently added to the Blakley Library collection.
Blakley Library has a rich collection of Biblical study tools. Use the tabs across the top of this page to aid in identifying specific sources which may be useful. Please note that the sources listed in this guide are only a starting point. The lists of resources are not comprehensive and there are many other excellent resources that space did not permit to be included.
More general resources are also very useful for Biblical studies. These include databases (e.g. ATLA, Catholic Periodical and Literature Index Online, Academic Source Complete, etc.), journals (e.g. Journal of Theological Studies, Modern Theology, etc.) and encyclopedias (e.g. New Catholic Encyclopedia). These and other general sources are included in the Religion and Theology Subject Guide.
Although most of the print sources listed in this guide are reference copies (shelved in the reference section of the library on the first floor), we do have circulating copies of many of the titles. Check the online catalog to see what's available. And if you want to browse through the print books on the Bible, this link will provide an overview of where they are located (click on "Subclass BS, the Bible" for detailed list).
