Library Workshop: SciFinder Scholar: Wednesday, February 2

SciFinder Scholar:

SciFinder (Chemical Abstracts Service) is a premier database for science and engineering.

In addition to chemistry and chemical engineering, it’s coverage extends to the chemical aspects of astronomy, biology, education, engineering, economics, geology, history, mathematics, medicine, and physics.

SciFinder’s content and format coverage (journal articles, patents, theses, etc.) will be reviewed and search techniques for topics, chemical substances and reactions will be displayed.

We will also briefly compare and contrast SFS with other important databases: Combined Chemical Dictionary, Reaxys (Beilstein/Gmelin), Web of Science, and PubMed.
