From the library home page, you can search for an article and then click "peer-reviewed" on the left side to ensure you are retrieving peer-reviewed articles. Make sure the article is actually a scholarly article, and not a book review or a letter to the editor or something like that. Scholarly articles generally are long and detailed, have an abstract, and references at the end.
When you go to the journal website, it may state clearly that it is a peer-reviewed or refereed journal. If not, go to the section for authors and it should say something like: "In addition, please remove all author names and institutional information from manuscripts, so as to enable blinded peer review".
