SciFinder is one of the core information resources for exploring the chemical literature, but it's not just for chemists. It can also be helpful to researchers in engineering (including nanotechnology and materials science), environmental sciences, physics, and radiology and other health 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 and (time permitting) 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.
Open to UCSD undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff.
