This is UCLan's Religion, Culture and Society library page.

For more help and guidance please contact your Faculty Librarian: Francesca Robinson


Search for books and ebooks on Library Search. It will tell you what we have in stock and where to find it.

Sometimes there may only be a chapter on a specific topic rather than a whole book. To find those, you will need to use one of our ebook databases which allow you to search through the whole text of a book. We have several ebook collections but a good place to start would be Ebook Central.
