Tips for Scott Library's integrated search interface



Q: What is the truncation symbol?

A: The truncation symbol for one or more characters is * and the wildcard for a single character is ?. A query can have up to 8 wildcards or 4 truncated terms.

Q: Proximity?

A: No, there is no proximity searching.

Q: My Campus Key works elsewhere. Why can’t I sign in here?

A: Make sure you're typing your campus key in all lowercase.

Use all lower case

If you are new to Jefferson your campus key may not yet work for the library search personalization login. In other cases, you may need to have the IS&T help desk reset your password (215-955-7975).  However, clicking the view online link for an ebook or article should still work for eligible users.
