Finding articles by topic in WorldCat Discovery

ADVANCED SEARCH in WorldCat Discovery can help you locate journal articles for your research topics. Here is an example of how you would search for articles that address both "religion" and "evolution." Notice that both terms must be keywords, that the format must be article, and the location is SU Library.
