SciFinder moving to web version
SciFinder Scholar has now changed to a web version of the database. In order to use SciFinder, users will need to register using their valid Stevens email address. If you are currently using the client version of SciFinder, you will need to register with the new web version. The client version will no longer work after the end of March, 2009.
Registration instructions are available on the Stevens Library website at http://www.stevens.edu/library/research/scifinder.html
Some of the new features of the web version of SciFinder include:
* Direct links to data
* Keep Me Posted enhancements
* Improved search precision
* Session history retention
* Index term linking
