SciFinder is a research discovery tool that allows you to explore the Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) databases containing literature from many scientific disciplines including biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, materials science, agricultural science, and more.
Each user must create their own account to access SciFinder. Follow the on-screen steps to complete your account creation.
Note that you will need to use your @hamline.edu account email to set up your SciFinder account.
If you already have a SciFinder account, you can skip to STEP 2.
If you do not use your SciFinder account regularly, ACS will archive your account after a long period of inactivity. Access will be curtailed and attempts to reset your SciFinder password will not work until a librarian contacts ACS on your behalf. Contact a librarian if you think your account has been archived.
Tip: login to your SciFinder account at least yearly to maintain your active account.
