Search for Materials



The Find Articles interface above will search the databases listed in this box, but sometimes it is useful to search a database directly.

The indexes below are particularly useful for locating research on Christianity and philosophy. Many include full text of articles. Note that you may simultaneously search ATLA Religion Database, Academic Search Complete, and Religion & Philosophy Collection in EBSCOhost (follow the link, connect to EBSCOhost and then select the databases before entering your search).

The following databases index subjects in religion and philosophy, but include many other topics.

Search Strategies


A keyword search returns the highest number of results. The terms you search can appear in the fields for title, author, subject, content notes, full text and elsewhere within a record.

• Example: Christian philosophy 

Ways to narrow the results:

• Add more topic terms or phrases: Christian philosophy history 

• Add variant terms or phrases: Christianity philosophy 

• Enclose words in quotation marks to ensure that the records retrieved include the two words as a phrase: "Christian philosophy"

Google Scholar Search

This search is broad and may find resources that are not immediately available from UNT Libraries. You can configure this search to have the results tell you whether you have full-text access through the UNT Libraries: start here, click on the Library Links option, search for University of North Texas System and then check the box to select it.

If UNT Libraries doesn't have it, in most instances access to materials from collections in other institutions is available through Interlibrary Loan.
