Online Reference Resources
CREDO Reference Collection and Gale Virtual Reference Library bring together multiple encyclopedias, dictionaries (both English and other languages), and other reference sources for those times when you just need a quick look-up, a definition, or a starting point for your research.
Bible commentaries provide line-by-line textual examinations of the Bible. These collections of scholarly explorations of the Bible are a valuable resource.
General surveys of the Bible as a whole are provided in the 220.7 section, while commentaries on specific books are listed in the 222 section. Commentaries are available for checkout on the 3rd floor, and for viewing in the reference section. When you're looking for commentary on a specific book, try entering that book as part of a keyword search (ie. "Bible -- Commentaries -- Genesis").
Here are a few selected resources to get you started.
Bringing together biblical scholarship, archeology, geology, and ancient history, Bible atlases help place the people and event of the Bible in context.
