AAS is a must for any History or English department, but as a multi-disciplinary resource, also covers areas of research such as: Agriculture, Science and Technology, Marketing and Advertising, Business, Women’s Studies, Political and Military History, Literature and Linguistics, Religion, Philosophy and so much more. What makes this collection more valuable is that is fully digitized with images from the actual documents and presented in a custom interface designed to serve the needs of academic level research.
ATLA Historical Monographs Collection: Series 1 contains over five million pages of content, and consists of titles from the 13th century through the 1893 World Parliament of Religions with the majority of titles from the 19th century.

ATLA Historical Monographs Collection: Series 2 consists of over five million pages of content from over 14,880 monographs dating from 1894 through 1922. This collection provides a broad view of the changing landscape of religion in America at the end of a century of dramatic cultural and political change.
It offers material on the significant shifts in the religious identification of Americans and the growing interest and experimentation with non-Western religions. It presents a comprehensive picture of American life at the time with the rise of missionary activity and evangelical Christianity and the emergence of the historical critical method – the foundation for all twentieth century biblical scholarship.

JSTOR is database that contains scholarly articles from many disciplines and subject areas. Much of its content is available in full-text (although full-text of recent articles may not be available for a year or more).
Library of Latin Texts, consisting of a Series A and a Series B. The present tool contains the Series A which offers the possibility to examine the distribution of word-forms through the entire database using each of the filters, i.e. the different periods of Latin, the individual authors and their works, and, consequently, to find out the exact number of their occurrences on each of these levels (and not only the number of contexts that contain the queried object); one can now, for instance, find out the distribution of a given word-form in each of the works of St Augustine in which it occurs.
LLT-B makes it possible to capture new texts on a significantly larger scale and in a much shorter time than has previously been the case. For this purpose, notably, much of the analytical work involved in preparing the texts has been dropped. So, although presently much smaller, LLT-B is expected to surpass LLT-A in this respect in the future.
