Reformed Online is looking for texts for its full-text database
Already for some time the full-text database in the Reformed-Online information system has made possible access to confessional texts, synodal documents, journals and further important literature of Reformed Protestantism. Besides this a title- and author-index offers a preliminary overview of the documents and literature available as full texts.

Particularly sought after at the moment are documents and texts of the Reformed tradition in PDF format, which would expand this international, virtual library of Reformed Protestantism.
