Much of the information about antibiotics in our health sciences databases is, not surprisingly, aimed at readers with some medical training. For information that the general sciences student is more likely to understand, try looking at subject encyclopedias such as the medical reference books available in Credo Reference. For more in-depth, but still readable, analyses, try searching in Google Scholar.
No matter where you search, a good search strategy is to put the name of the bacteria, then AND, then the name of the antiobiotic. Also, put multi-word names in quotations marks. For example, you might search Google Scholar for "staphylococcus aureus" AND tetracycline.
