2. Once you have arrived on the search results page, you will be asked to sign in with your SEU username and password

3. Once you have signed in, locate the "Show Only" category on the right side of the page, and click on "Peer-reviewed." This will help limit your results to scholarly, peer-reviewed articles.

If you have too many results to look through, you may want to try using some of the additional filter options on the right side of the page. You can sort your results by relevance, date, author or title. You can also limit your searches to a particular resource type, time frame, subject, or language.

4. Once you have found an article you want to read, you can click on the article title to open a more detailed record.

5. A screen will pop up like this one, which shows different databases that the article is available in. Click on the blue links to go to the database where you can view the article. If one of the links does not work, try the next one. If you need help, feel free to chat with us from the chat box in the bottom right corner of our homepage.
