With more and more information being made available online, we're always on the lookout for resources that might be useful to our readers and researchers. Earlier this week we found out about a great partnership between Princeton Theological Seminary Library and the Internet Archive called Theological Commons.
This digital library contains thousands of books and journals on theology and religion, primarily materials that are out of copyright, or for which special permission has been obtained from the copyright holder. Typically, works published before 1923 are unambiguously out of copyright, and such works constitute the vast majority of content in the Theological Commons.
Although Princeton Seminary is a Presbyterian institution, the Theological Commons contains materials about a number of Christian traditions and other religions, as well as related histories, literature, art, and more. Many are searchable, and some are even available for download as ebooks.
In addition to contributions from the PTS library, there is also significant participation from the University of Toronto, Library of Congress, University of California Libraries, New York Public Library, Brigham Young University, Boston Public Library, the University of Illinois, and many more Internet Archive users. The search filters can help you sort through the wealth of information to find exactly what you're seeking or maybe even something you didn't think to look for. What will you find?
