Find Articles

This guide is an introduction to the basic resources for doing research in theology and for beginning a biblical exegesis paper.

Indexes and Databases

The first five resources focus specifically on tools for finding journal articles and other types of material in theology and religion.  The resources which follow them are more general in scope.

Where's the Article?

If you search a database and the full article's not there, don't despair.  Look for the "FindIt" button:  or FindIt@BC.  Find It will offer help including:

  1. If BC has the full text in another database, you will be taken to a list of databases for the full text. 
  2. If BC subscribes to the print journal where the article appeared, the Catalog will say Find in Library and you can check which library or libraries may have the year/issue you need and where it is located.
  3. If the article is not available online or in print at BC, use the link to Request the item. We can usually get the article from another library within a few days and email it to you.
