If you want general information about particular new religions you can try the following database. But, be warned, some were set up by groups with thier own biases
Jeffery HADDEN at the University of Virginiahas created a great academic Web site with a database that includes over 150 new religions.
The Christian Research Institute archive at CRI. This is a well known Christian fundamentalist group which does good work although not all the material meets academic standards.

Anton Hein's APOLOGETICS INDEX can be very useful. It is written from the viewpoint of an evangelical Christian and does not always meet normal academic standards.
