Ministry Matters Database (The New Interpreter’s Bible) Linking Errors

If you are experiencing issues using links to materials on the Ministry Matters database (such as The New Interpreter’s Bible, or Abingdon Biblical Commentaries), you are not alone!

We are currently experiencing a problem with the way OCLC is configuring the proxy link for this database and we are working with them to resolve this issue.

While this issue is being fixed, you can still access the New Interpreter’s Bible, and all of the other resources on the Ministry Matters database, through the database page on the Fuller library website at library.fuller.edu. Once on the Fuller website main page, follow the steps below:

  1. Click the Databases button.
  2. If desired, sort databases by topic, such as theology and religion.
  3. Scroll down to the Ministry Matters icon (the list is alphabetical). Click on it.
  4. Proceed to login, using your Fuller ID for remote access if prompted.
Students on Fuller’s campus can also try accessing the database through this direct link .
If you are specifically looking for the New Interpreter’s Bible or Abingdon commentaries, they are both located under the Biblical Commentaries tab as seen below:
If you are still having problems accessing Ministry Matters (or any other eresource) do not hesitate to contact the library at lib-systems@fuller.edu.
We thank you all for your patience as this issue is being resolved!

Greetings from Electronic Resources Generalist

Hello Fuller community!

My name is Timothy Grasso and I will now be serving in the David Allan Hubbard Library as our new Electronic Resources Generalist. I will have the pleasure of working with the Electronic Resources Librarian, Daniell Whittington, in maintaining library website functionality and content, facilitating student and faculty access to e-resources, and contributing to e-resource collection development.

Next week, I will be announcing dedicated e-resource help desk hours!  This will provide me with more opportunity to help, both in-person and online, with any e-resource access or functionality questions you may have.

I am excited about this new position, and I look forward to working with you to improve your Fuller library experience soon!
