SciFinder is now available via the Web!

web version of SciFinder

Because I am on the CAS Academic Advisory Committee, Stanford is one of the initial academic institutions to have access to the web version of SciFinder. For access requirements information, see CAS’s SciFinder information page. Mac Users: All text searching features are available but structure and reaction searching won’t be available for several months.

SciFinder Scholar 2007 software for Macs and PCs is also available for downloading. For access instructions, see the Off-Campus Access to Stanford Library Resources page.

Personal Registration & Login Required

Each user will need to register and create a user name and password for login.

Privacy of Registration Information

Customer privacy and data security are primary concerns to CAS. No personal information collected during product registration, such as name, address, and phone number, will be given or sold to any outside organization for its use in marketing or soliciting without customer consent. Likewise, the information will not be shared with agents or contractors of CAS for the purposes of performing services or providing support for CAS.
