Database Search Services
Why Opt for a Search by a Librarian?
- Take advantage of the searching expertise of the library staff
- Enhance your access to current information from journals
The Library offers a modestly-priced searching service to all Jefferson faculty, staff, and alumni. Database search services are not available to affiliates, members, or the general public. Check by user group for prices.
Information Needed for an Effective Search
When you request a search a librarian will interview you briefly about your topic. The information requested is considered confidential and is sought only to clarify what kind of material is being sought. Topics the librarian may address include:
Individual searches are usually completed within 48 hours.
Rush service is available for patient care. There is no extra charge for bonafide emergencies.
Results are delivered as a RefShare database and Word document.
Search fees may be paid by cash, check payable to Thomas Jefferson University, or by interdepartmental charge code.
