Online Library Search Systems

DiscoverE is a search engine for the library catalog (think of it as Google for the library). It is the recommended starting point for most researchers looking for books at Emory. The video below offers an introduction to the many aspects of the DiscoverE search functions!


Using ATLA

The ATLA Religion database is the first stop for finding articles in theology and religion. To perform a subject search:

1. Enter the database. This will require you to enter your Emory credentials (user name and password).

2. Enter your search terms in the space provided. For an initial search, select "Subject" for your search field in the drop down menu.

3. For a more advanced search, use the drop down menu to narrow by title, author, etc. 

4. For more information about the tools availilbe for searcing within ATLA, including searching by scripture verse, please see the the Pitts ATLA tutorial page.  One tip: if the passage you're searching has a popular name in addition to a scripture reference (e.g., "lost sheep parable"), it can be helpful to do the scripture search first, then follow it with a subject search for the popular name.
