The Online Library

The Adelaide Theological Online Library never closes, so you can access e-books and journal articles when it’s convenient for you!

There are a lots of ways for you to find online resources.

  • start at the FindIt@Flinders Search Page. You can then search Findit@Flinders, search a specific database or ejournal. Click here for tips on searching the catalogue.
  • go to Periodicals and Journals and select an eJournal from the A-Z list.
  • go to Finding articles and choose a database to search.

Note: if you are experiencing difficulty with Ebooks loading, try a different browser eg Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.

Accessing Electronic Resources

Search for your title and click “view online”. Check the Authenication notes. ATL library members can access titles which say “Access only available to Theology students and Adelaide Theological Library patrons”.


Click on the link above the Authenication note. You will be asked to enter your patron barcode (ATL patrons) or FAN and password (Flinders students). Note: students with new plastic Student ID cards will need to add ACD in front of their student number
eg ACD1505 or ACD20140052
