According to Library Journal, this is "the definitive bibliographic reference covering the history, culture, area studies, and current affairs literature of the United States and Canada, from prehistory to the present."
Supports religious and theological scholarship in graduate education and faculty research. Contains thousands of citations from international titles and multi-author works in the field of religion. Includes a full range of index citations to journal articles, essays in multi-author works, and book reviews from three ATLA print indexes: Religion Index One (RIO), Religion Index Two (RIT), and Index to Book Reviews in Religion (IBRR).
Indexes scholarly literature on the history of the world (excluding the United States and Canada) from 1450 to the present. Coverage is broad, so the database is also useful for topics in other disciplines (e.g. religion, anthropology, or political science).
