CHFY001F Chass Connect: Religious Studies

How to research religious objects and their devotional and religious significance.


Search the UCR Library Catalog (Scotty)

  • Refine searches using Subject Headings, if needed
  • Select titles that are relevant
  • Write down locations and call numbers 
  • Use call number maps to find specific floors where the books you need are located


    Use * to find various endings of a word: e.g. altar* will find altar, altars and altarpiece. 

    If you find a book in Scotty that says "ill." in the Description line, then it includes images or illustrations.

    Check the bibliographies or lists of references in books for leads to other resources.

  • In addition to books, you can find beautiful images in  Artstor.


Think of different synonyms:
e.g. madonna or virgin

Use UC-elinks to find where the article is: online, in the Library, or at another UC Library 's (Melvyl).

Don't forget to cite while you write! Check our Citing sources guide. Also see Writing a Research Paper for more help.
