The library recently purchased Series 1 of ATLA’ s Historical Monographs Collection. The database provides more than 15,000 e-Books from 1800 through the 1893 World Parliament of Religions, and some earlier publications. It includes many volumes documenting the recovery of languages used during the biblical era and provides an in-depth view of the way that interest in, and knowledge of, biblical languages emerged during the nineteenth century, an important foundation for today’s study and understanding of biblical languages. It also contains titles in Aramaic, Arabic, Greek, Hebrew and Syriac. Beginning with July 1st, direct links to the individual e-books will also be available in our local online catalog , as well as WorldCatLocal, our new discovery and delivery interface.
