Unlimited access to SciFinder for SHU

SHU Libraries are delighted to announce that CAS has granted us unlimited access to SciFinder, a major research tool for chemistry and related sciences. No more not being able to log on because the available “seats” are occupied!  In addition, SciFinder now integrates well with ChemBioDraw, to which SHU Libraries also provides access.

If you are a chemist or taking chemistry courses, sign up for a web-based SciFinder account.  You can find the instructions for accessing SciFinder and ChembioDraw on the chemistry research guide.
