Religious Studies Library Periodicals

During the summer of 2004, Kim Davis and Mark Premo-Hopkins led a crack team of bibliotaxonomists and re-organized the REL Library.


Although Gorgas Library has a wide selection of journals in its second floor periodicals room, the Department's own library stocks those scholarly periodicals of particular relevance to our classes. In most cases, these journals are published quarterly, and the Department carries at least two years worth of back issues for each title. Older issues are available through Gorgas Library, and can be found by searching its online catalog.

In addition, Gorgas Library subscribes to a number of electronic journals, which provide articles in PDF format. The catalog for e-journals can be found here.
