How do I find Religion books?

How do I find books on Religion?

Many books for Religion begin with the call numbers BI to BX 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/or check out the resources below. 

The Home Delivery Service is available to post out books to Distance students - this is a free service in NZ.

Use the Virtual Bookshelf to virtually browse for books across a specific subject area.
