Continued Research Support for Alumni
Like ATLA Catholic Periodical and Literature Index (ATLA CPLI), this alumni edition contains indexing from 1981 to the present, including index records produced by the Catholic Library Association (CLA) through November 2011. The American Theological Library Association (ATLA) acquired CPLI from CLA in September 2011 and has since concentrated efforts to further develop the scholarly content of the index. This includes increased coverage of international titles, enhanced coverage of multi-author essay collections, extensive harmonization and enrichment of records across the entire database and additional electronic-only journals.
