We’re pleased to announce the Union Digital Library, providing the highest quality digital resources with unmatched accessibility from September 2015.

The library includes:
Online research skills tutorials
Key textbooks for all our modules as well as Bibles, commentaries, original language texts and tools, theological dictionaries, Bible encyclopaedias, and many other key resources
Relevant academic journals
The ATLA database – one of the major on-line bibliographic and full-text sources for theology
Access to international theological search engines and digital libraries including The Global Digital Library on Theology and Ecumenism, and the Codex Sinaiticus
Significant database of resources in New Testament and classical Greek
A wide variety of worldwide theses databases, and much more
We have integrated the Union Digital Library into our learning platform, providing instant access from a central repository for all enrolled students at the WEST campus and Union Learning Communities. Donald Mitchell, Librarian at WEST, says, 'In a growing digital environment, where the scholar and researcher can feel a little like an explorer lost in a jungle, this portal provides a simple route to critical search tools, resources and learning materials.'
