    Native-American religions refers to the sociocultural belief systems that make up the moral and ethical values of any of the different groups of indigenous peoples of North and South America. The religions of Native Americans, like of any people, provide the framework by which one sees the world and give meaning to life's basic preoccupations. Studies of religious art and architecture can be found in the main Art section. Christian art has its own shelfmark (A. Christian Art), but books on the art of other religions are shelved under the broader categories used in the Art section. Architectural studies of religious buildings are shelved at A. Architecture (and 4to., Folio, etc).

    Religious freedom is one of the most prized liberties of the American people, a fact that strikes some people as incongruous if they think of the United States as a secular society. That very phrase, however, is misleading, in that it implies a society in which religion and religious ideals are absent, and secular values alone govern daily conduct. Atla's member librarians, libraries, and research tools connect students, scholars, and researchers with scholarly religion and theology content. In honor of Black History Month, Atla in partnership with EBSCO is offering free access during the month of February to the African American Historical Serials Collection.
