This research guide is designed to highlight major online and print research resources which support the Pastoral Studies program at Loyola University Chicago. It also identifies links to important web resources providing a wide array of valuable and freely available information. In addition to this guide, it is highly recommended to look at the additional subject-specific Research Guides. Each guide contains various resources and tools that have been created to help you research based off of your subject of study or your research topic. If at any point you are not sure where to find specific information, you can always contact me or use our Ask a Librarian.
