When it comes to research, more is better — more titles, more full text, and more places to look for sources. The ACU Library carefully selects books, journals, and databases to satisfy the specific research needs and requests of students, faculty, and others at ACU. Here are some of our new resources:


  • APA Handbook of Research Methods in Psychology
  • The Cambridge Companion to Christian Ethics
  • The Cambridge Companion to Science and Religion


  • Currents in Biblical Research
  • History of Political Thought
  • Journal of Markets & Morality
  • New Testament Studies


  • American Doctoral Dissertations – to search for dissertations (some full-text), which can be used as models for research or for their bibliographies
  • GreenFILE – to search for articles and reports on topics related to the environment and ecology
  • HighWire – to browse for open access science journals, which can be searched from their websites
  • Science.gov – to search for science reports and research articles funded by the U.S. government
  • WorldWideScience.org – to search across science databases across the world

Check out our list of new items for more books and DVDs (some to be ready soon) and our Journals & Databases page for more research tools, including those mentioned above. The ACU Library can also get articles and books from other libraries through our interlibrary loan service.
