As the history of science and technology is interdisciplinary, articles may be sought in journals in these subject areas or in historical journals. Journals give you the ability to search for articles on a specific topic or event. It can be an easier way to find relevant information because you are usually not sifting through a large pool of results. If you visit the E-Journals page, you can bring up a list of all the journals with subject content in History & Archeology. You can also search for a specific journal title from the E-Journals page or in DELCAT Discovery.
Finding articles within databases and journals is not the same process you would use to conduct a search in Google or an internet search engine. You cannot type in a question, but rather need to choose specific keywords and phrases to find results. These tips are similar to how you would search for material in DELCAT Discovery.
Helpful Ways to Search:
Use the Advanced Search option in databases and journals to narrow down by date, region, type of document, and more!
