University of Divinity Library Hub: New Online Resources Portal for the University of Divinity

An impressive collection of databases is now available to all UD students and staff at the University of Divinity Library Hub . An Ark ID is required to get past the login screen.

The resources available include full text databases from EBSCO, ATLA, Proquest, Gale and Oxford University Press. It is possible to search University of Divinity Library Hub by selecting the databases individually or all together by using the general search facility on the site.

This library has decided not to renew many of its own subscriptions that are now duplicated at the University of Divinity Library Hub , and changes will be progressively made during the course of the year to the relevant links on our Online Resources page .

Dalton McCaughey Library visitors will continue to be able to access all of the resources affected from terminals within the library.

If you wish to comment on these changes, or to notify the Library of any access problems at the University of Divinity Library Hub, please write to .

Computer network issues at the DML

We are experiencing internet connection issues at the Dalton McCaughey Library. What this means for students and staff is that

  • you may at times have trouble accessing the library's web site, catalogue or on-line resources from outside the library, and
  • you may at times have trouble accessing the library's on-line resources and the Internet in general from inside the library.

We are aware of the problem, and expect a technician to come and fix the proble, though this may take a few days.

We apologise for any distuption this may cause.

ATLA survey about information findability

The American Theological Library Association invites the Australian theological research community to participate in a survey aimed at finding out how readers find and access journals and books online.

The survey is being carried out by Simon Inger and Tracy Gardner, consultants to the scholarly publishing community, and follows on from work undertaken in 2005, 2008 and 2012. This study will allow the consultants to report on trends in reader behavior and the main survey findings will once again be made publicly available.

At the end of the survey you will be redirected to a separate site where you can optionally enter our prize draw to win one of three $100 Amazon vouchers and optionally elect to receive by email a copy of the findings of this survey.

The survey should take no more than 9 minutes to complete. All responses are given anonymously and no tracking devices are used.

This survey has been supported by the following organizations: Annual Reviews, American Theological Library Association (ATLA), The Bone & Joint Journal, Brill, Cambridge University Press, The IET, The JAMA Network/American Medical Association (AMA), OECD, Publishing Technology, Sage, and Wiley.
