Indexing Essay Collections
As we previewed earlier this year, the Atla team has been diligently working to expand its indexing of essay collections. Working with our publishing partners, users, and scholars to locate and index essay collections allows us to feature metadata for hard-to-find content for all our users. We wanted to share all the essay collections our team has indexed so far in 2021. You can peruse the full title list here.
A few notable titles that came as suggestions from the Atla community include:
- Who Created Christianity?: Fresh Approaches to the Relationship between Paul & Jesus by Hendrickson Academic
- The Oxford Handbook of the Bible and American Popular Culture by Oxford University Press
- The Oxford Handbook of Feminist Approaches to the Hebrew Bible by Oxford University Press
This is part of an ongoing series. Check back in August for the next announcement of newly added essay collections.
* Atlas PLUS includes all of the titles in Atla’s original full-text product, Atlas, and 190+ additional full-text titles.
