Tyndale Online Reading Rooms: Biblical Studies
These resource pages were designed to help make biblical-theological resources available to those without easy access to a theological library. TORR helpfully links to GoogleBook previews for important works in the field. As with all GoogleBook previews, though, the number of viewable pages is limited.
Digital Public Library of America
The Digital Public Library of America brings together the riches of America’s libraries, archives, and museums, and makes them freely available to the world.
The Agade list forwards news and information of interest to scholars in biblical studies, Near Eastern studies, Late Antiquity, Judaica, Classics, archaeology, and even broad intellectual history. This is a great resource for staying up-to-date on developments in the field, but it is not itself a cite-able resource for most research projects.
