COTAR – a database of Torah journals

The COTAR database is a significant development in the ongoing trend to make more materials available and easily accessible throughout the world via cyberspace. The last decade has seen more and more journals provide online access to their articles and indeed, many journals now only exist online. However, many Torah journals which often contain significant, innovative and cutting-edge discussions on contemporary topics as well as insightful and scholarly reassessments of classical issues have until now remained somewhat obscure and unknown. With the advent of COTAR this is sure to change.

COTAR is a fully searchable, full-text database.The user who needs to locate articles on specific topics, to follow the writings of specific authors or merely wishes to browse now has easy access to a sizable and growing library.
