Religion and Theology: Home

A guide to library resources in religion, religious studies, and theology, plus selected links to external sources.

Finding Print Sources in the Library

Books and periodicals on religion, including theology, are shelved in the 200-299 call number range of the Dewey Decimal System. You can search for books in XACWeb, the library's online catalog, by basic keyword, title, author name, subject headings, and other terms.

Finding Print Sources in Other Libraries

Looking for a book or journal but can't find it at Xavier? Search WorldCat to see which other libraries in the New Orleans area (and beyond) own it.

You can request items from other libraries through Xavier's interlibrary loan service. Requests can be made online or in person at the 3rd floor ILL desk.

Xavier students can also borrow books from Loyola University's Monroe Library, with certain restrictions. Ask for a LALINC card application at the Reference desk on the 1st floor.
