ATLA RDB® and ATLA CPLI® Merge Vocabularies

ATLA is in the process of merging the vocabularies used in indexing the ATLA Religion Database® and the ATLA Catholic Periodical and Literature Index®. Where possible, ATLA RDB® subject heading conventions will be applied to the ATLA CPLI® data. During this process  some ATLA RDB® subject headings will be modified.

In order to keep our users up to date on the vocabulary changes, we have added an Excel spreadsheet that documents the changes that were made. The current list of significant changes have been updated (July 31, 2017) and can be downloaded from our website.
