Finding articles in a specific journal

Suppose you would like to find articles about Egypt that were published in the periodical Biblical Archaeology.  The Advanced Search screen allows you to coordinate search terms easily, using the drop-down menus.


Enter the word Egypt in the first box.  It’s not necessary to select a field from the drop-down menu; if you do not select one, the program will search for your term anywhere in the bib record — the Title, Abstract, Subject and other fields.  In the second box, type the name of the specific journal you are looking for, and then click on the drop-down menu.  You want to choose Source, because that is the right limiter for a periodical title.

Click on the Search button.  You receive a set of articles dealing specifically with Egypt that were published in that periodical.  If you prefer, you can also use the Limit your results options explained below.
