Get SciFinder Scholar 2007 for Access to Chemical Abstracts

Does your research involve an interest in “chemicals”?
Insect pheromones? Agrochemicals? Neurotransmitters? Biological membranes? Drugs? Antibiotics? DNA / RNA / Proteins? Genomics? Hormones? Enzymes?

If so, you probably will profit from using SciFinder Scholar (SFS) to search Chemical Abstracts (CA), which indexes "chemistry" in the broadest sense!

About SciFinder Scholar…


Important! Our license agreement limits use of SciFinder Scholar to academic use by U of Illinois students, staff and faculty, only; any use related to paid, commercial work or non-academic research is forbidden. Full license details are available at the download web site and also appear with every login.

How can you access SciFinder Scholar?
Unfortunately, this resource is not web-based; it is only available for those who have loaded the SciFinder Scholar program onto their computers. (Or, you can use it at any public computer in any U of Illinois Library by clicking on this URL).

For instructions for downloading SciFinder Scholar (for PC and Mac) to your office computer, please contact the Chemistry Librarian, Tina Chrzastowski (chrz@uiuc.edu, 217-333-3737) or the Biotechnology Librarian, Katie Newman (florador@uiuc.edu, 217-265-5386). We'll send you the web address of a secure web page from which you can download the two program files. There you will also find instructions for what you must do to access SFS from off-campus.

If you have a previous version of SciFinder Scholar on your computer, you will need to upgrade to the new version, SFS2007, in order to maintain your access to SciFinder Scholar. With this release, previous versions are no longer supported.
