    Encounters

    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!  🙂     Home page:Oxford Biblical Studies Online.  Oxford U.

    Trial: Oxford Biblical Studies digital collection

    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,

    Best of luck in your religious explication!   Here is your course research guide, now including a low-budget video of locating and using the reference room Biblical commentaries. (I think I need to buy a microphone). 🙂     Please be in touch with any research questions! Ms. Sanborn
