An overview of library resources in Hindu Studies

Getting started

If you are new to using our library resources, please check out our Getting Started with Library Research guide. It can give you an overview on searching for books and articles. We are also available to help in person, on the phone, or via email. Don't be afraid to Ask a Librarian!

We are constantly adding items to our collection and we'd love to hear from you. Please use our suggest a purchase form to let us know what we could add in Hindu studies (or any other theology topic).
