Angelo & Jennette Volpe Library


SciFinder classic/SciFinder Scholar, produced by Chemical Abstracts Services (CAS), was retired on December 31, 2022.  SciFinder-n, which was introduced in 2020, is the new interface. If you had a SciFinder classic/SciFinder Scholar account, you do not need to create a new one. Your existing SciFinder login information will work in SciFinder-n.

Following are some helpful links for the transition to SciFinder-n:
