Gale Virtual Reference Library: EVERYONE SHOULD USE THIS DATABASE! This is a collection of reference eBooks. Once you get to the site, click on the "Religion" section on the left-hand side to find 10 different encyclopedias to search. Mrs. Judkins highly recommends that you search "The Encylopedia of Religion" as your first step.

World Religions Online: An excellent database just on religion.

World Religions: Belief, Culture, and Controversy: This database is more of a "textbook of religion" as it only has one article per topic. The articles are good introductions.

Opposing Viewpoints in Context: Use this if you are doing a "controversial" or "pro/con" issue dealing with religion or for current events issues.

General OneFile: This is a database of newspaper and magazine articles. Use for current events or topics that are from the last 20 years or so.

Biography in Context: If you are researching individual people, be sure to use this database.

Encyclopedia Britannica Online: Once you login click on "High School."

World History in Context: Once you do a search, look on the left hand side for "Related Topics" - you will usually see an alternative spelling and will be able to click on the word to make sure you are getting all of the articles on the topic.
