On the library's home page, the Primo search box provides one search engine for journal articles, books, videos and more.  Once you enter a key word search into the box and click the search button, you will be able to limit your search to Peer-Reviewed Journals.  You will also see additional opportunities to narrow your search, such as publication year.

Or, on the library's home page, click on Databases.  From there, you can find what's available for searching by title or by subject area.  Each database description will tell you whether or not journal articles are covered in the database.  Many journal article databases offer the option of limiting to Peer reviewed or Scholarly.
