Faith Integration Resources: General Resources

This guide contains a variety of resources for faith integration research in particular disciplines at APU. This guide was originally created by Michelle Spomer.

Faith Integration Collection at APU

Click here (this link will take you into the APU library catalog) to see the complete list of titles that we have in our Faith Integration Collection, located on the 2nd floor in Stamps Library. There may also be additional copies throughout the circulating collections of the three APU libraries.

Books at APU

The following books can be found in the APU Libraries. For more books at APU (or from LINK+ and WorldCat), try some of the searches in the 'Searches to Get You Started' box to the right.

Searches to Get You Started

The links below perform subject searches in the APU library catalog. Be sure to click on the link plus button button off to the right of the search results for similar items in the LINK+ catalog. Some of the links below are only for LINK+ items (which means the APU library catalog didn't have anything for the subject heading).

The library resources you discover by using the links below are intended to provide a starting point for faith integration research - it is up to the individual to determine which, if any, of the items are useful (in other words, these are not 'officially sanctioned' by APU, nor will all of the items have anything to do directly with faith integration).

TIP: For more resources outside of the APU Libraries and LINK+ collections, try entering the subjects you see below as subject searches in the WorldCat catalog. Use our interlibrary loan service to request items from WorldCat.
