Use CLIO to locate books, journals (but not the articles themselves), visual materials, etc.
In CLIO, a "Subject Heading" search is often a good starting point. Searching on the subject of "Religion," or a specific religion's name, such as "Islam," will get you started. Your results will display the number of titles we have under that general heading, and then under a series of sub-headings, which often focus on specific countries or time periods.
Three useful subheadings to look for when starting out are
These will often point you toward resources that can give you preliminary information.
You may also perform more general keyword searches. These will look for your search terms anywhere in a CLIO record: title, author, subjects, summary, table of contents (if available), etc, and allow you to perform a more targeted search. For example,
- christianity AND food
- judaism AND folklore
- islam AND mysticism
If you need help finding what you need, Ask a Librarian or the subject librarian for your area (above).
