We'll be BACK on site, but NOT just yet!

Check this site regularly for updates on what onsite services we are restoring.

LCR is part of the overall University of Calgary re-entry strategy. We are working to restore some essential services as quickly as possible in a way that is safe for you - our users- and our staff and in the context of the overall campus re-entry plan. We will continue to offer our suite of online services and will also be expanding access to online books and resources. Virtual service hours today: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Physical locations remain closed. You can return your books to the exterior book drop on the East side of the TFDL. More information on the Covid 19 page.

Religious Studies Web Guide


Purpose:  To collect links to free religious studies resources supporting  academic research: open-access sacred texts, open-access collections of scholarly secondary works, open-access journals,  open-access reference tools (dictionaries, bibliographies, indexes etc.) 

Audience: Professors,  post-secondary religious studies students, independent scholars

Structure: To facilitate browsing through the wealth of resources by either  format of resource or  by religion as a means for users to identify potentially useful books, articles, theses and other scholarly material


  • Works written from a confessional perspective.  Our focus is not clergy or practitioners studying to be better informed about their religion.
  • Popular magazines, newsletters, newspapers.
  • Resources easily located via simple web searches (e.g. book reviews) or readily found through other tools on the web
  •  Individual secondary works available e-text; we do link to collections of such texts
  • Items containing limited information on religions. All items linked to will have a strong focus on religious studies
