Get started by going to the Library's home page (link below).  In the box labeled 'Go straight to the Good Stuff', click on the link 'access our entire database list'.    Select the Science tab.  (or access from the link below) Click on the 'Academic Search Complete' link.  Then:

1. Type in enzymes for your initial search.

2. On the left side of the result list limit your search by:

  • Full Text box
  • 'Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals'
  • You may also want to limit by date, e.g. 2009-2014

3. Scroll down until you see 'Subject' and click on it. You can select multiple subjects that apply to your topic that will limit the results of that first search.

4. If you did not find the term you are looking for, or want to limit by additional subjects, there is also an option: 'Subject: Thesaurus Terms'

5. Many times finding the best articles for your speech or paper may require that you return to the initial search box to add terms to your original search, or to start a new search using other terms.

There are other Science related databases in that list.  You can try similar searches in those to find additional articles.

I have added links below for more information about searching our databases, especially our Science databases.
