Library Subscribes to Luthers Werke

Following our trial subscription in May, Fuller Libraries have added The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke to our collection of electronic resources.

Luther's_Werke

The online version of The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke is a complete collection of Luther’s writings. It is one of the largest editions of any individual author ever to have been created. This monumental work, of which the first volume was published in 1883, consists over 117 quarto volumes and is now published in full. Luthers Werke provides an indispensable historical-critical tool for theologians, historians, linguists and literary critics carrying out research into Luther’s life and work.

Martin Luther (1483-1546) is one of the central figures in the development of European cultural and intellectual history. This is as a result of not only his theological influence but also his contribution to the development of New High German.

The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke is published in electronic form by ProQuest with the co-operation and support of the publishers Hermann Böhlaus Nachfolger Weimar GmbH & Co.

All of our current students, staff, and faculty should be able to log in with their new Fuller ID. If you have not reset your password, you should be directed to do so at: reset2015.fuller.edu.

Recent error messages experienced by our Moodle users when trying to access a permalink from our databases are now fixed as well.

For our alumni, access to electronic resources still remains separate and is not yet integrated with the new Fuller ID. Please visit the library’s alumni pages at infoguides.fuller.edu/libraryalumni and follow the instructions on the main page for remote access to selected databases.

We invite all Fuller Library users who experience any issues to please complete the support form at: http://infoguides.fuller.edu/survey.php?survey_id=4787
