SciFinder Access Changing Now – June 30th Deadline

University Libraries will be moving to the web version of SciFinder Scholar

Access to the client version (desktop application) of SciFinder we currently use will be discontinued on June 30, 2011.

You must register by June 30th to be able to convert your files to the web version. (Convert your client-saved .sfr files to .akx files using the new SciFinderfile conversion tool)

Registration is required…you must create your own id and password and you must use a email address.

Click here to access the registration page. Follow the easy step-by-step instructions for registration.

A campus e-mail is required for registration with the suffix “” After you submit the registration form, CAS will send you an e-mail with instructions for completing the registration process.   This e-mail should arrive within 30 minutes and you must reply within 48 hours.  The registration confirmation e-mail may be identified as spam by your e-mail application, so check your spam folder.
