Keyword Search

If you do not know where an asset is located, or if you want to see all available results for a search, you can search the entire Library. By default, results are grouped by asset type.

To search the Library

  1. At the top of the page, enter a word or phrase in the Search box.
  2. If desired, click Select to choose your initial filters.
  3. Click Search.

    The search results page displays, with results grouped by asset type. The top matches of each asset type show on the page.

    Note: To view the results of a single asset type, such as Books or Courses, click View All next to the appropriate asset heading.

  4. To further refine your search, use the search features in the Advanced Search.

  • Details: Opens the asset's details page.
  • Launch: Launches the asset.
  • Download: Downloads the content for offline use.

    Note: Courses download through the SkillSoft Course Manager (SCM). If you do not have SCM installed, a new window opens automatically and you are prompted to install it.
