UCOR 141-61: Biblical and Historical Perspectives
Welcome to this research guide created especially to connect students in Dr. Cavanaugh's UCOR 141 class quickly to the resources they need to do the assignments and projects for this class. Use the tabs that run across the top of the page to access the different resources available. The tabs will take you to:
Exegetical reference works, great for getting background information on books of the Bible, who wrote them, and help with understanding specific passages
Resources specific to the Genesis assignment, including links that will run searches for books in DuCat, the online catalog, and links that will run searches for articles on specific chapters of Genesis in the theological and biblical databases on EBSCOhost
Resources specific to the Wisdom Book assignment, including links that will run searches for books in DuCat, links to religion and theology databases, and instruction on how to find exegetical articles in these journal dtabases
Resources specific to the Contemporary Book assignment, including links that will find reviews of the books on the reading list in appropriate databases, as well as links to the catalog records for the books on the list, which tell you if the books are available to borrow or checked out.
Information on how to get books and articles not accessible though the Gumberg Library
