Research Advisory Tool

A guide for religious studies and humanities resources from the Catholic University of America libraries


Are you having trouble finding relevant material for your research? Are you unsure where to begin? Using the RAT may help! The RAT (Research Advisory Tool) is a citation database of over 2,800 select reference materials available through the Catholic University of America Libraries. It includes reference books, e-books, subscription databases, CD-ROMs, and web sites ― all designed to point you to pertinent and interesting resources in performing your research.

Disciplines included in this database are Art and Art History, Biblical Studies, Canon Law, Church History, Classics, Comparative Literature, Drama and Theater, Media Studies, Medieval and Byzantine Studies, Modern Languages, Philosophy, Religious Studies, and Theology.

These sources have been selected by the subject librarians who considered the research value of the resource per se, the value of the resource to CUA scholars, students, and staff in particular and last, the lesser known works that deserve a wider audience. The annotations were written by the librarians, staff members, and graduate students in the Religious Studies and Humanities Department in the John K. Mullen of Denver Memorial Library in Washington, DC.
