Why use ATLA

The ATLA Religion Database is the best, and in many cases, the only source for finding peer-reviewed scholarly articles and essays in religion and theology.

This means that learning to use it effectively is a wise investment of your time; it will benefit you throughout your time at Perkins, and beyond. 

Here are some tips to help you make the most of this essential tool:

(You can access the ATLA Religion Database from Bridwell Library's website www.smu.edu/bridwell using the "Find" drop-down menu, or use the "ATLA Religion Database tab on the search box)

 

 

Tip 1: Begin with a broad search

Begin with a broad search (e.g. chapters of Biblical books rather than specific verses), and general terms ("flood" rather than "deluge")

 

Tip 2: Know what kind of search will give you the best results
