You may also use library books and eBooks to supplement the info you find in scholarly articles. These longer resources can answer many questions you have about a religion, since they have so much space! Scholarly articles, on the other hand, will likely only give you a narrow view of a specific aspect.
You do not need to read the full book! Use the table of contents (near beginning of book) to find a chapter that sounds relevant. Many non-fiction books also have indexes at the end that will list all the terminology used in the book and show what pages those terms can be found on.
Browse the books below or use the library catalog to search for your own. Since books are longer and broader, your search terms can be less specific.
Don't be overwhelmed by the length of a book! Instead of reading the whole thing, you can take a strategic approach to finding the most relevant sections. This video explains how to use a print book for research. The same techniques can be used for an eBook, but using an eBook can actually be easier! Rather than having to scan through pages with your eyes to find important terms, you can use the "Search Within Book" or "Find" function available in most eBooks to get a list of pages with that term.
