How to Use Find Journals By Title

Finding Journals by Title can be used to find electronic and print versions of specific journal titles.  It can also be used to search by "keyword."  Using the pull down menu type your subject keyword until the menu choice "Title contains all words"  This will show all journals that contain that keyword in their title!  Another great way to search.
