Interpretation Commentaries and iPreach alert!

Unfortunately, Westminster/John Knox Press made the decision to withdraw the electronic versions of Interpretation Commentaries series out of the IPreach database.  We no longer have online access to these 35 commentaries, although IPreach still lists the titles as current content. Meanwhile, in consultation with some faculty members, the library is trying to replace this online series with similar content.  Your suggestions are welcome. Other eBook Bible commentaries can be found in our local library catalog, by searching for the specific subject and commentary keyword (i.e. Galatians commentar*) and selecting the limit eBooks.

E-Korean Studies changes

Last academic year the library subscribed to a package of E-Korean Studies databases.  Two major databases, DBpia and KRpia, were dropped from the package; however, Fuller library decided to subscribe individually to DBpia and KRpia.  So please remember that the E-Korean Studies link will not include DBpia and KRpia.  Instead direct links to DBpia and KRpia can be found on our databases page, and these two must be searched separately.
