The Theological Journal Library is one of my favorite resources and I've used it heavily for years. If these journals were printed volumes, they would be dog-eared by now.

Having these journals in an electronic format, on the other hand, allows you to do things that otherwise would be virtually impossible.

Think about it. Many of these journals are only to be found in the largest seminary libraries. Tracing the thread of scholarly conversation from one printed volume to another would be difficult at best, even with a yearly index, but searching the Accordance module is done with lightning speed, even on an iPad or iPhone.

Imagine the shelf space that would be required to hold the volumes of more than 30 different journals. Bibliotheca Sacra alone includes 169 volumes, beginning with volume 1 in 1844!

In short, having this module gives me more research flexibility than even the best libraries can provide. I can't imagine doing research without it.
