This guide provides an overview of resources available for the study of religion. It is intended as a general guide. As such, the resources chosen for inclusion are those most likely to benefit persons studying any of the great world religions.


This guide serves as a starting point for a basic introduction to religion, beginning research in the various aspects of religion as an academic discipline, or interdisciplinary work which intersects the study of religion.


spotlightThis library guide is part of our “spotlight on the disciplines” literacy tier. In this tier you will be introduced to advanced academic research skills. These skills are developed by working with research librarians in upper-level courses specific to their discipline. The spotlight represents the in-depth instruction, library guides, advanced search strategies, and research consultations provided by the research & engagement librarians.
