SciFinder Essentials for Chemists and Non-Chemists Workshop
May 6 (Wed), 10:00 – 11:30 am
Geisel Lib Bldg Classroom 3
SciFinder is one of the core information resources for exploring the chemical literature, but it’s not just for chemists. Since SciFinder indexes the literature in chemistry and related sciences it can also be extremely helpful to researchers in engineering (chemical, nano, materials science, bioengineering, MAE, etc.), environmental sciences, physics, and radiology and other biomedical sciences.
This hands-on workshop will cover the SciFinder essentials: topic and author searching, improving your search results, accessing the full text articles, and how SciFinder compares with other databases like Web of Science, PubMed and Reaxys. You’ll also learn to search CAS Registry to find chemical substance information, and get an introduction to the built-in editor for drawing chemical structures and reactions.
