Following our trial subscription in May, Fuller Libraries have added The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke to our collection of electronic resources.
The online version of The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke is a complete collection of Luther’s writings. It is one of the largest editions of any individual author ever to have been created. This monumental work, of which the first volume was published in 1883, consists over 117 quarto volumes and is now published in full. Luthers Werke provides an indispensable historical-critical tool for theologians, historians, linguists and literary critics carrying out research into Luther’s life and work.
Martin Luther (1483-1546) is one of the central figures in the development of European cultural and intellectual history. This is as a result of not only his theological influence but also his contribution to the development of New High German.
The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke is published in electronic form by ProQuest with the co-operation and support of the publishers Hermann Böhlaus Nachfolger Weimar GmbH & Co.
**UPDATE: EZProxy is back up but running a little slow. Users are now able to access our electronic resources remotely. The IT Team will work on improving the speed. Thank you for your patience.**
Fuller Libraries are currently experiencing an issue with our EZProxy service. Users are currently not able to access electronic resources such as databases and eBooks from a remote location.
The IT team is working on resolving the issue as soon as possible. We will post updates here and let you know when it is resolved.
David Allan Hubbard Library will be closed on Friday, July 3, and Saturday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day. When the library re-opens on Monday, July 6, we will begin our reduced summer hours: Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
As the 2014-2015 academic year comes to a close and we prepare our annual statistics, we would like to share with you last year’s numbers. In the 2013-2014 academic year, Fuller Libraries had the fourth largest collection of print materials among the 190 other stand-alone and departmental theological libraries in the Association of Theological Schools (ATS). In addition, we have the largest Asian collection of any ATS institution.
Breaking it down further, Fuller Libraries carry 712,000 print volumes, offer materials in 56 languages, subscribe to 120 research databases, and provide access to 200,100 eBooks. For more details on collections, access, and services statistics from the 2013-2014 year, click on the images below (will enlarge in same window). Stay tuned for our 2014-2015 statistics in the coming months.
**This post has been updated to reflect the new start date for our summer hours**
David Allan Hubbard Library will have reduced summer hours: from July 6 through August 29, the library will be open Monday through Saturday, 9:00AM to 9:00PM.
The David Allan Hubbard Library will be closed Friday, June 26, and Saturday, June 27, in preparation for the construction of the new Faculty Commons. Some library resources on the third floor will be relocated to clear the area for the commons, which will serve as a consolidated resource for Fuller faculty and doctoral students with teaching responsibilities. In order to support the Faculty Commons and further the seminary’s commitment to integrate information technology and academic resources, the third floor will also become the new home of the Distributed Learning team.
As a result of this closure and subsequent construction, the computer lab currently on the third floor will be closed; however, computers will remain available for use on the first floor. We will also install several new computers over the course of the summer.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Meanwhile, we are excited to expand our resources and services to the Fuller community.
David Allan Hubbard Library will open late on Saturday, June 13, due to Commencement. We will open at 12:00 p.m. and close at 11:00 p.m. Congratulations, class of 2015!
