Sacramento Library Digital Resources
Through the databases of EBSCO and Cengage/Learning (Gale), the library provides students and faculty with electronic access to specialized theology and counseling information resources as well as an entire electronic library of general academic resources.
These resources are restricted for use by Western students and faculty only.
User IDs and passwords are provided in each course’s syllabus.
- ATLA, the American Theological Library Association religion database.
- PsycArticles, from the American Psychological Association (APA), which contains full-text articles from some 80 psychological journals, 1894-present.
- eBook Academic Subscription Collection, a growing library of over 83,000 academic ebooks. These can be read on your computer or downloaded to your e-reader. See instructions under the category browse menu on the left of the screen. Contact the library or office for assistance.
You may search several databases at once, but EBSCO recommends one at a time, as features/options among the databases differ.
Please contact the librarian for additional assistance.
GALE CENGAGE provides access to a variety of databases. This also requires a username and password which will need to be acquired from Western's Library staff. MFT students: note the Psychology Collection.
