Encounters

By - Research & Instruction Librarian May 17th, 2016

Explicating during the last 2 weeks of term?

 

The Oxford Biblical Studies Online offers side-by-side commentary and Biblical text. (Does it up the database’s credibility to know it was accessed 1,200 times by last term’s 40+ Encounters students?).

 

To delve further into the scholarly conversation consider JSTOR and the library’s collections of academic eBooks.  More details and search strategies in the Encounters research guide (accessed 1,600 times by last term’s 40+ Encounters students).

 

Research questions?  Do let me know!  🙂

Encounters Research: New eCollection and Kahoots

By - Research & Instruction Librarian February 11th, 2016

Dear Encounters,

 

Great to see you this week and last!

 

I’m so glad you like the digital concordances in the new Oxford Biblical Studies Online.

 

And thanks for playing the Kahoots game!

 

Trial: Oxford Biblical Studies digital collection

By - Research & Instruction Librarian November 12th, 2015

The Encounters research guide has a new tab describing our *new* till-the-end of term trial to the Oxford Biblical Studies digital collection.

 

What’s in there?  Translations, commentary, concordance (& general reference articles, maps and images).

 

Tell me what you think?  Worth adding to the library’s digital fleet (I think so.)?

 

Dear Encounters,

By - Research & Instruction Librarian November 5th, 2015

Great to see you this week!

 

Here is the direct link to your research guide.

 

Thanks for the excellent analogies and helpful search suggestions.  I love Lily’s ’16 analogy comparing a concordance to the Control + F feature for the Bible.  Thanks Rita ’16 for suggesting we search JSTOR for our specific biblical passage.
