Subject List of Databases
Alphabetical List of Databases




Our Discovery service is Encore Synergy (via Innovative Interfaces). We have built it into our Library home page as our basic search option and brand it as simply "Search the Catalog." Running a search in the Catalog search box on the Library home page will take you to search results in Encore Synergy. The default "channel" (view) is our books and local collection, but at the top of the Encore results screen is a link that says "Articles," which will run that same search in a handful of our databases. Users will be asked to authenticate if they click on the Articles channel. Our Classic catalog is still available to users who would like the advanced search options for our local collection, and the link included above on this policy page for Scranton, or the "Classic catalog" link within Encore will take you to the Classic catalog. We do not call this service "Encore" with our patrons, so using that term with Scranton patrons will be meaningless to them. 



Off Campus Access

To access the Library's electronic resources from off-campus, students, faculty and staff should log into My.Scranton.edu, and then click on the Library tab. This tab will include links to all parts of the Library, and as long as users click through this portal, they will be authenticated and should be able to access the Library's electronic resources from off-campus. Another option is for users to access the Library resources through the Library's home page, and when a database is clicked on they will be prompted to log into My.Scranton.edu; they should do so, and then they will be taken into the database.


If users cannot log into My.Scranton.edu and they are University of Scranton students, faculty or staff, they should contact the Technology Support Center at 570-941-HELP (570-941-4357) for assistance with their My.Scranton.edu login.
