Online Faculty Teaching Resources

Christian Ministries Research Guide

Please direct your students to the Christian Ministries research guide. You can link directly to it in your online course. 

Most Helpful Databases

These databases will be most helpful for ministry research. Journal articles and essays (book chapters) can be found searching these.

Accessing databases from off-campus

From off-campus, log-in to the databases using your TIU username and password. (This is what you use to log into your Trinity email, myTIU, and Moodle.)

If you are having trouble logging in, see the login help page.

Using WorldShare

Your students will use WorldShare to request books not available at Trinity or through I-Share and to request articles not available in either print or electronic format at Trinity. Before you can use WorldShare, you will need to set up an account. Fill out the form, and then you will receive an e-mail letting you know that your account has been approved and you can begin placing requests!

  • To request an article they find in a database, they will first click on "Find It" to make sure we do not have it in print or online. Then they will click on "Request through WorldShare," log in to their WorldShare account, and submit the request.

  • To request a book through WorldShare, they will find the book they need in WorldCat. They will click on "Search the catalog at Rolfing Library of TIU"  to make sure we do not have it, then click on "Request through WorldShare," log in, and submit the request.


  • They may also request an article, essay, book, or other item by logging in to your WorldShare account, clicking "Create a Request," and filling out the request form. For further information, click here.
