Off-campus access available, no downloads required

July 12, 2010

For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -The Chemical Abstracts Database, SciFinder Scholar, is now available to the OSU community via the web.

CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, is the world's leading source of chemical information. SciFinder is a tool to explore CAS literature from chemistry, biomedical sciences, chemical engineering, materials science, agricultural science and other related disciplines.

For more than a decade, SciFinder users were required to download software that could only be used on-campus. The new web-based platform allows registered users to access the database from any computer with an Internet connection.

OSU faculty, staff and students can register to use SciFinder at http://argo.library.okstate.edu/loggedin/scifinder.htm. After registration, SciFinder can be accessed through the OSU Library’s database list or by going directly to https://scifinder.cas.org.

SciFinder offers beginner and intermediate training in a variety of formats. Visit http://www.cas.org/support/scifi/index.html for online training options. To arrange personal training from the OSU Library, contact Kiem-Dung Ta at kiem.ta@okstate.edu.
