Description
Although religious groups make up a significant percentage of the Canadian population, there is a gap in research about whether or not Canadian libraries carry sufficient materials to meet the needs of their religious users. To address this gap, this study examined the number of Christian, Islamic, and Sikh religious resources, which were applicable for religious practice, in Toronto Public Library and Vancouver Public Library. This information was compared to the most current data from Statistics Canada on the number of self-identified Christians, Muslims and, Sikhs living in Toronto and Vancouver. The findings suggest that the amount of religious material currently available for the religious practice of these groups may be inadequate and that this is an issue which requires further investigation.
