SciFinder is being upgraded to SciFinder-n

Welcome to the new generation of Scifinder: SciFindern!  

It is also written as SciFinder-n.  

Registration is required before the first use.  If you have already registered for SciFinder, your username and password will work for either one. Register for a SciFinder Account

Also, the registration for academic IDs remains the same and users should use the existing process through the Library.  The same ID and password work for both platforms so there is no additional registration for SciFinder-n. 

The links below work from anywhere, but you must use them to access either interface from off-campus.  ​

Both interfaces search the same information but are quite different.   

  • SciFinder   This classic version has been available since 2008 and has an older architecture.  It has system limits so you have to be more precise in searching.  
  • SciFinder-n   This interface has just become available.  It has a more modern architecture so it allows more flexible searching, has relevancy ranking,  and better functionality via mobile devices.  It also has no system limits, renders structures in standard conventions and allows you to combine reference and structure searches.  It includes these new tools: PatentPak, MethodsNow and Retrosynthesis Plan.
