1. A small collection of online commentaries are available through the B.L. Fisher Library website. To access these commentaries, go to AsburyConnect>B.L. Fisher Library>eBook tab in the search box in the middle of the page. Search for the short name of the book you are looking for (i.e. Mark) and the word "commentary." Also, you can also find commentaries in the database "Cambridge Books Online." Please be aware that some of these commentaries may not be considered scholarly. Generally, ATS professors expect that students will be using scholarly or critical commentaries for their seminary work.
2. WorldCat is a database that contains the databases of most libraries in the world that have electronic records of their collections. What this means is that WorldCat is able to provide information about the nearest libraries that have the book and how far away they are. Search by book title or author. In the item record, there is a place to type in a zip code or city.
3. ExL students can have the library scan up to 10% or one chapter of a commentary. To have a section of a commentary sent, students will need to put in a Library Loan request specifying which commentary and scripture passage is needed. Students will need to make a new library loan request for each commentary they need to have scanned.
