Welcome to the Religion Resources pages. This guide is a starting point for general research in the field of religion. Resources include reference selections from the AU library, databases, and Internet links. Each book title links directly to AU Library Catalog. Database recommendations link directly to specific databases and Internet links cover various aspects of religion.

The Ashland Theological Seminary Library holdings are also in our catalog. AU students may check out books from the Seminary Library also, which greatly widens the resources available in religion and psychology.

If you have research questions, an AU reference librarian is available for assistance.
