One of Jefferson Lab's original missions was to further our understanding of the short-distance structure of nuclei, in particular, to understand what happens when two or more nucleons within a nucleus have strongly overlapping wave-functions - a phenomena commonly referred to as short-range correlations. Herein, we review the results of the (e, e′), (e, e′p) and (e, e′pN) reactions that have been used at Jefferson Lab to probe this short-distance structure as well as provide an outlook for future experiments.
