There is a resource that I should have been aware of but slipped under my radar. It is found on the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) website and is called the Cooperative Digital Resources Initiative. Perhaps it is the title that caused me to overlook this link, but it contains a wealth of resources. Many seminaries and divinities school become closets for an eclectic accumulate of donated collections. Many of them are of limited value; however, many contain interesting resources. These collections, until recently, have been only accessible to those in the seminary/divinity school community or those who made the effort to go and visit the collections (if these collections were even known). ATLA has digitalized a variety of these collections for ready access. These include numismatic collections, archaeological artifacts, art, iconography, manuscripts, books, and a variety of other collections. It is an interesting site to explore.
