Answer

You have several options!  First, many students working on this assignment have found starting with the Encyclopaedia Britannica Academic database was helpful.  Just type the name of a religion into the search box.  Not sure what religion to pick?  Take a look at the links to the Related Articles on the Religion page.

Another option is to type the name of a religion into the Library Search box on the Library's webpage.  Typically, the first entry at the top of the results list will be a Research Starter article; these articles provide great summaries and overviews of topics.  For example, if you do a Library Search search for Hinduism, you will get this results list. At the top of the results page, you will see a link to the Hinduism Research Starter.

The Pew Research Center has a comprehensive Global Religious Futures Project.  You can browse by religion or other topics, as well as by country. The Data Explorer option lets you create custom visualizations.
