All aspects of Religion, including major belief systems.


This guide focuses on print and licensed resources for the study of religion that are readily accessible to users of the Rutgers University Libraries. 


QuickSearch is the search box that appears on the library home page and elsewhere on library pages.  It subsumes our catalog and many other databases for books, newspapers, and journals.  Hence your searches can access a great variety of material, but you may want to use the filters for material type, subject, date published, etc.  Also be aware that many other indexes, like Historical Abstracts, MLA, ATLA, and IMB, are not included.

The library stacks are open, and you may also request physical books for free UPS home delivery within the US.
