Search the Library Catalogue

Recommended books, eBook databases and searching beyond Otago: use the headings below to navigate

Reference books are great places to start when learning about a new topic or creating a search strategy. The titles below are recommended, but not inclusive.

These databases contain ebooks with Theology content.  Many of these ebooks can also be found searching Library Search | Ketu.

Many books for Religion begin with the call numbers BT to BV and are shelved on the first floor of the Central Library.  Many more books with related and/or specific topics can be found throughout the Library's collections.  Find them by searching Library Search | Ketu and then browse the Virtual Bookshelf to find other around the same topic area

Interloan service

Found a citation to a book but it is not in the Otago collection?

Philosophy Books


If you're looking for reviews of a specific book, the best way to find them is to search these databases for the Book Title and/or Author, and look for a way to limit your results to Book Reviews.
