There are some tips to try when you are trying to find scholarly and scientifically-focused articles in Discover.
Use helpful search terms and separate nouns on separate lines. After you find an article that interest you, look at the subject words and search with them to find related articles. Remember: limit to scholarly articles.
Discover: Limit by Discipline
You can limit your search by discipline on Discover's Advanced Search page. Remember to limit to academic journal articles. This image shows a search, by biology-related discipline, for academic journal articles by the topic "gene therapy" <as a subject> and future.
Borrow from other libraries: ILL
If our library does not have a book or article you need, St. Mary's University students, faculty and staff may order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
