Catholic Periodical and Literature Index (incorporated into ATLAS 2018)

Return to Licenses

By the spring of 2018, ATLA Catholic Periodical and Literature Index will be included within ATLA RDB instead of being offered as a stand-alone product.


This database provides indexing of periodicals, essay collections, church documents, papal documents and electronic resources expressly addressing the practice and intellectual tradition of Roman Catholicism. Content within its scope is selected for indexing based on enduring scholarly merit. The American Theological Library Association (ATLA) acquired CPLI from CLA in September 2011 and holds the copyright for ATLA CPLI. ATLA has concentrated efforts to further develop the scholarly content of the index, with 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.
