SciFinder goes web-only June 30

SciFinder is a research discovery tool.  It provides access to the CAS databases produced by the Chemical Abstracts Services.  CAS databases contain literature from many scientific disciplines including biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, materials science, agricultural science, and more.  SciFinder also provides access to patent information, conference proceedings, and the CAS Registry of Chemical Substances.

The client version of SciFinder will be discontinued on June 30, 2011.  After this date, all U.S. institutions will only have access to the web version of SciFinder.  Instructions to register for a username and password for the web version were posted on our database page in late 2010.  If you have not already, please register for the web access to SciFinder to ensure uninterrupted access.

Contact the library at if you have any questions or concerns.
