    Looking for Academic Literature?

    Below are the four best places to start searching for academic literature on your topic.  Explore the tabs along the top for even more options.

    • Library Search | Ketu
      Library Search | Ketu provides fast, simple, one-step searching across the University of Otago Library's resources. It is designed to make it quick and easy to begin researching a topic. It is not a replacement for the detailed and precise search tools available from individual subject specific databases.
    • ProQuest Religion
      Contains primarily full-text, international periodicals for diverse religious and spiritual studies, covering formal theological studies of major religions, as well as the most recent trends and scholarly thought. Included are titles from religious publishing bodies and nondenominational organisations.
    • Religion and Philosophy Collection (EBSCOhost)
      This database indexes journals on religious history, biblical studies, epistemology, political philosophy, and the history of philosophy. Some full text but mostly reference and abstract only.
    • JSTOR
      Provides full-text access to back issues (delay in coverage generally 3-5 years) of selected scholarly journals in history, economics, political science, demography, mathematics and other fields of the humanities, social sciences, and life sciences. The Library's access includes all Arts & Sciences Collections, the Life Sciences Collection, Business IV, and the Ireland Collection.

    Searching the Hewitson Library

    The Hewitson Library is part of the Presbyterian Research Centre, and is the library for the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand.  

    The Library supports the Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership and the Otago University’s Department of Theology & Religion teaching programmes, as well as the resident and non-resident members of Knox College, ministers and laity, members of the wider Church, and the public.

    The Hewitson is located on the same site as Knox College, in Opoho, Dunedin.

    Find out what items are available through their dedicated catalogue:

    Approximately 2/3 of the collection is listed on the online catalogue. A card catalogue still provides access to the Presbyterian, Paterson, New Zealand & Pacific collections, plus the Rare Books.  Learn more about using the Library for research here:
