Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What if I am a student trying to get access to the databases?
If you are a current student or researcher, you will not be able to gain access to our subscription databases (Atla Religion Database® (Atla RDB®), AtlaSerials® (Atlas®) and AtlaSerials PLUS®) via our website. You will need to contact your institution's library.
If you are an alumni/ae, your institution may subscribe to our Alum products. View a list of participating schools to see if your library is one of them.
Please note: membership does not include subscriptions or access to our subscription products.
How do I update permalinks in LibGuides and syllabi now that we’ve upgraded to Atla Religion Database with Atlas PLUS?
You will need to update any URLs that link to a specific database since each link points to a specific database shortcode and the new databases have different shortcodes. Find shortcodes for all EBSCO databases, including Atla research tools. You may be able to use a "find and replace" function in your documents to making updating your URLs easier and faster. For example, find "db=rfh" and replace with "db=isdar". Examples of permalinks:
- Atla Religion Database® (Atla RDB®) with AtlaSerials® (Atlas®)
- Atla Religion Database with AtlaSerials PLUS® (Atlas PLUS®)
