If you’re a first time user, you need to register.  There is a link to the registration page on the Chemistry Research Guide:

  2. Click on Chemistry and then open the Chemistry Research Guide.
  3. Click on the Databases tab.
  4. Go to the box at the bottom of the page titled SciFinder Scholar: First Time Users.
  5. Click on the register first and it will take you to the registration page.
  6. Keep a record of your password!

SciFinder is one of the few databases we subscribe to that requires this registration process.  Please contact Melanie Hillner (, Science Librarian if you have any trouble with the registration process.
