SciFinder scholar now in use at more than 1000 schools

"SciFinder Scholar has enjoyed widespread acceptance in academia in part because it has made the most comprehensive databases of scientific information so easily accessible," said John F.

Content and ease-of-use have proved to be a winning combination for SciFinder Scholar and its users."

Like the SciFinder research tool for scientists in industry, SciFinder Scholar provides access to CAS databases containing bibliographic information for chemistry-related literature and patents back to the beginning of the 20th century, plus the world's largest chemical substance database, the CAS Registry. SciFinder Scholar's intuitively easy user interface eliminates the need to train users in searching techniques, thus ma
