The syntax for jumpstarting directly to a single database in Informit is as follows:

search.informit.org/search;res=XXXXX

For multiple databases use search.informit.org/search;res=XXXXX,YYYYY

Pre-formatted searches allow you to log in to Informit and jumpstart to a particular database and retrieve results automatically.

The syntax is search.informit.org/search;res=XXXXX;search=YYYYY where XXXXX is the database you wish to search and YYYYY is the search term, e.g. to find all articles in a database where a Plus Text PDF is available, this is the syntax required:

search.informit.org/search;res=APAFT;search=FTI=Yes
