Although the Anchor Bible Dictionary is only held by the Library in print, online students can access specific articles within the Dictionary, and other print reference works, through the Library's Scan-on-Demand program. 

First, log into your library account by clicking "My Account" in the top right corner of the library home page

Once you are logged in to your library account, click on your name on the top right corner. You will see a drop down menu. Click on the second link My ILL Request.

Then, click Create Request to create a new request.

Since you are requesting a section of a book, click the "Book/Book Chapter" tab. Make sure to select "yes" for "is this a scan on demand request," and provide all required citation information (with asterisks*). Please also copy BS440 .A54 1992 in the call number box, along with your desired dictionary term in the "Title of Chapter" box. 

If you are unsure if your desired entry is included in the dictionary, please contact our reference librarians at to confirm. They can give you the correct entry title, page numbers, and volume number to include in your Scan-on-Demand request. This will greatly expedite the speed with which your request can be fulfilled. 

Once all the information is complete, click submit.
