The Cambridge University Library’s digital collections. The Library’s collections are an extraordinary accumulation of books, maps, manuscripts and journals. While parts of the Library’s manuscript collections have already been published in print, microfilm and digital formats, the Library is now building a substantial online resource so that the collections will be more accessible to students, researchers and the wider public. These digital holdings include important works from many religious traditions, particularly Judaism, Islam, Christianity and Buddhism, including some of the earliest Qur’anic fragments on parchment, over one thousand manuscripts in Hebrew covering a wide range of texts, and the Codex Bezae Cantagbrigiensis, the Moore Bede and the Book of Cerne. See the website for more information on these digital collections.
Auburn Theological Seminary‘s Center for the Study of Theological Education provides reliable information and perspectives on theological education in North America. It conducts a “cycle of surveys” that revisits segments of theological education–students, graduates, faculty, administrators, trustees, and seminary finances–regularly, in order to track trends over time. CSTE also studies special topics, such as student debt, doctoral education in theology and religion, and the culture of theological schools. Find out more from their website.
