Access to JEFFLINE for our Hospital Affiliates

Several area hospitals serve as training sites for Jefferson students. Most of these affiliate hospitals have libraries. Scott Library staff are eager to support Jefferson students at all affiliate sites. Communication of students' needs and providing support to area librarians serving Jefferson students are a high priority for Scott Library staff.

Affiliate librarians enjoy many benefits -

  • Invitation to an annual meeting
  • Access to Scott Library during regularly scheduled hours
  • The opportunity for group purchase of databases and products
  • Discounted interlibrary loan fees
  • Document delivery services for items owned by Scott Library
  • Borrowing privileges for Scott Library's print collection
  • Free Education Services workshops
  • Access to the services of Medical Media Services at the same fees as Thomas Jefferson University customers

The staff of our current affiliates enjoy a variety of privileges, as well.

Access to Full-Text Resources

Much of JEFFLINE is freely accessible to any user via the Internet. However, some portions of JEFFLINE are licensed for use by specific populations and require a Jefferson Campus Key and password for access. Restricted services include most databases, electronic books and online journals.

Hospital affiliates who wish to join our consortial purchasing program may elect to purchase selected products and obtain Jefferson Campus Keys for their employees. Interested participants may join at any time. Our current partners include A.I. duPont Hospital for Children / Nemours and Lankenau Institute of Medical Research.
