Search using your keywords, then restrict your search to 'Scholarly & Peer-Review' (for example) by using the filters in the column on the left to narrow your search.

Use Summon to search across the entire library catalog (books, DVDs, government documents) and most of the library databases (journal articles, images, newspapers).
