If you need a digitally available resource (particularly in religious studies), the DTL 2 probably can provide access to it. The instructions below will help you discover and retrieve the content that you need. If you need more assistance, please contact your institution’s library to inquire further.
Most DTL 2 content, including ebooks, articles, journals, and databases, can be found by using the main search box at the top of the page or the advanced search engine.
If using the search bar does not provide enough resources for you, look through the A-Z list of databases. The brief database descriptions in this list will help you decide which databases are most likely to help you find the specific information that you are seeking. When you find a database of interest, simply click on the link and use the search engine within that database to discover the content you need.
To find general resources on a particular topic, peruse the DTL 2's cultivated subject guides.
