If you are not sure what religion you want to research, you can start by using a religion encyclopedia or dictionary to get ideas. You can just read the introduction of the encyclopedia or look through the table to contents to get some ideas.
The specialized encyclopedias available on the Gale eBook are a perfect place to launch your research. You'll find overviews of the beliefs and practices of the world's many religions, as well as historical information and membership statistics.
Access Gale eBooks through the MJC Library's Articles & Databases page.
All of these resources are free for you and available whether or not you are on or off campus. If you are off campus, you will login to databases just like you do for Canvas or your school email.
Use books to read broad overviews and detailed discussions of your topic. You can also use books to find primary sources, which are often published together in collections.
You'll use the library catalog to search for books, ebooks, articles, and more.
