A very helpful metaguide, though it requires a healthy measure of prior knowledge to navigate the collection effectively. Use the sidebar index for quick access.

Calvinism Resources Database.

This resource searches the holdings of the Meeter Center for Calvin Studies, a research center that seeks to hold in print a copy of every possible piece of research, published or otherwise, on the Reformed branch of the Reformation, but they also collect materials more broadly related to the Reformation.  Search results yield location and call numbers related to their particular collection.  Resources are not available digitally.  This database is best viewed, therefore, as a searchable bibliography for the identification of resources to then be obtained through other means.
