Looking for a specific article?
For tracking down a journal article quickly, please use iDiscover. Combine the author's name with a few words from the article's title, typing these search terms into the search box. If the article is available online, you should be able to get to it directly by clicking on 'Full text available'. If it isn't online, then iDiscover will tell you where copies of the print journal can be found.
At the Divinity Library, print journals are shelved in section 12 on the Mezzanine floor. If the article is in a latest issue of a journal, and DivLib has a current subscription, you will find the most recent issues opposite the Issue Desk.
Looking for articles on a topic?
Just add a few keywords to the search box on iDiscover. Be careful with your search terms, and try synonyms if you're not getting the results you hoped for.
