Through its research projects and training programs, CRCC has created a number of resources that are useful for academics, students and religious and civic leaders. These resources include both methodological tools for social scientific research of religion, as well as handbooks, tip sheets and primers.

Many of these tools have multiple uses. For instance, professors teaching religion courses with a field research component will find the “Studying Faith” Methods book useful. Community leaders can also use these methods to find out more about their communities. Religious literacy tip sheets are geared to disaster response, and they also can help students, researchers, government agencies, non-profits and businesses learn about and develop relationships with faith communities.
