An Evaluation of the Accessibility of E-resources from Theological Library Websites
Main Article Content
This study examines the accessibility of e-resources from the websites of theological libraries to discover if theological libraries are providing digital access to e-journals, recommended religious Internet resources, and digital libraries. Qualitative content analysis was used to evaluate the placement and terminology of e-resources on twenty-five theological library websites of faith-based institutions with primarily graduate/professional students. Findings revealed slightly more than half of these websites make e-resources available and are easily accessible through a quick navigational pathway. Terminology used was found to be diverse and varied. These findings suggest that theological library websites are attempting to meet the digital needs of their students. Further study is recommended to understand the impact, if any, these findings may have on the digital needs of theological students.
