SciFinder Scholar: New Web-Based Version to Replace Client


The client/download version of SciFinder Scholar will be retired on June 30, 2011. After that, you will only be able to access SciFinder via the web. If you currently use the client to access Chemical Abstracts and other databases, you are advised to begin using SciFinder Web as soon as possible.

SciFinder Web requires an initial registration, and you must log in each time you use it. Although the content in both versions is identical, SciFinder Web includes additional features such as search alerts and the ability to tag articles.

SciFinder is restricted to UCSF faculty, staff, and students. Unlike most of our other electronic resources, there is no walk-in access available for non-UCSF affiliates on any library computer.
