The Florida State University Libraries provide access to the SciFinder Scholar system for on-campus FSU faculty, staff, and students.
Scifinder Scholar provides access to several Chemical Abstracts Service databases, including Chemical Abstracts, Registry, CASREACT, CHEMLIST, and CHEMCAT. It includes journal articles, book chapters, patents, conference proceedings, technical reports, and dissertations. Users may search by author name, research topic, molecular formula, chemical structure/substructure, or chemical reaction.
Please note that SciFinder Scholar is also available from workstations at the Dirac Science and Strozier Libraries. If you work or live on-campus, you may download and install this product on your own computer.
