For SciFinder Scholar users, the client is dead; long live the Web.

CAS will be discontinuing the client platform on June 30, 2011 for all U.S. and Canadian academic institutions. On this date, UCF will only have access to the web version of SciFinder.

SciFinder can be accessed using any standard web browser. You must register for access.
