About the Post-Reformation Digital Library
Statistics

Only a few years ago, the dominant model for using digital sources for the study of early modern theology was the privately funded initiative, or subscription-based service, where a specialized editorial board worked over a multi-year period to digitize a limited collection of representative primary sources, and sell this service to academic institutions.

PRDL offers an alternative model. Building on the reality of a steady stream of new publicly available digital books, editors are able to identify relevant resources from the mass of digital materials available. The texts are then accessible in real time to scholars and the general public. Because new resources are becoming available on a daily basis, PRDL is surpassing similar subscription-based services in quantity of material, and will over time only become an increasingly more useful resource.
