It’s finally here at College of Charleston, are you excited?  From now on you don’t need to install the client software any more.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Register for a user name and password using SciFinder Registration first before you use this new Web version!
Note: Use the following link to find out How to Register to Use SciFinder:   http://library.cofc.edu/scholar/HowToRegisterToUseSciFinder.pdf.
Only people with CofC email can create a user name and password.

2.  SciFinder Web Version (use the user name and password that you registered to log in)

The client version will cease to work on Apr. 17, 2009. So try out the Web version now.

(The links are on the library databases page underneath the old SciFinder Scholar (library only) link.  It’s also on the Chem Libguide)

Besides all the features that you love in the client version, CAS promises that the Web version has more features you will become to love and is easy to use.

Hi there,

We recently converted to the web-based version of SciFinder at UNC Wilmington. Unfortunately, b/c of our VPN setup users cannot access SciFinder from off-campus.

Can CoC users access SciFinder from off-campus or do you have similar problems?

I tested it from off-campus, I had no trouble accessing SciFinder Web Version from off-campus at all. We use EZproxy for both of the URLs (SciFinder Registration and SciFinder Web Version).

We currently use remote desktop technology (Fairview) to use the client version off-campus for chem faculty, it works fine too. see my old post: Off-Campus/Remote Access to SciFinder Scholar, finally here at CofC!
