cdh banner

The University Library is pleased to announce that The Canterbury Dictionary of Hymnology online is now available for Cambridge University users. “It is an essential reference resource for scholars of global hymnody, with information on the hymns of many countries and languages, and a strong emphasis on the historical as well as the contemporary.”

This e-resource replaces the printed Dictionary of Hymnology produced by John Julian in 1892 and contains over 4000 entries from over 300 authors from over 30 countries, writing on hymns of the Judaeo-Christian tradition. Any updates will be immediately available as part of the subscription which will be due for review in March 2015.

You can access the dictionary from here, from the eresources A-Z list, and you can search for and link from the catalogue record in LibrarySearch. A link will also be added to the ebooks collection web page.

There is unlimited concurrent access, both on and off campus (with a Raven login) and you can copy & paste articles if you want to print or save them.

If you have any questions please email the ebooks team on ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk
