REL 255: Spiritual Formation for Ministry

Searching for Resources

In our library catalogue, type your topic, e.g.

Select a relevant book in your results list, and then View the Description for subject keywords and subject headings (under Subjects). 

Once you know some subject keywords for your topic, do a subject (su:) search.

You could also try an Advanced Search, combining keywords from several Subject Headings:

  • AND finds results with BOTH terms 
  • OR finds results with EITHER term
  • spiritual*  finds any ending, e.g. spiritual, spirituality

For more help on searching, go to our library website.

From the library Databases page, go to EBSCOhost and then select EBSCOhost Web.  Then choose your database(s). and create a search similar to the example below. Finally, you may limit your results by using the filters on the left-hand side of the screen, e.g., recently published (in the past 5 years),  full text articles in peer reviewed journals. 

The Sample topic below is The New Monasticism movement, associated with Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove:

  • AND finds results with BOTH terms 
  • OR finds results with EITHER terms
  • monastic*  finds any ending, e.g. monastic, monastics, monasticism

For more help with EBSCOhost databases, go to the library website and look under the Databases tab.
