SciFinder works a little different than most of our other databases. When you click on the link that says "Full Text," it doesn't necessarily mean that the full text is available. Instead, clicking this link searches all of our other databases to see if we have access to the full text of the article. If we don't, be sure to request the article via interlibrary loan!
CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, provides video tutorials to help you navigate SciFinder.
In order to use SciFinder, you must create a SciFinder account. If you have already created an account, you can access SciFinder directly here:
If you don't have an account, you must first create one. To do that, follow the steps below.
Click on this link to begin the process of creating your account:
Once you have created an account, SciFinder will email you a link that you have to click to confirm your registration. NOTE: Your account is not complete until you click the confirmation link. If you click on the link from on-campus (recommended) then your registration is complete and you can begin using SciFinder. If you are confirming your account from off campus, proceed to Step 3.
If you want to confirm your SciFinder registration from off campus, you can use this tool to help you affix the university proxy to the link that SciFinder sends you.
