SciFinder Is Now on the Web ... ONLY

The library's subscription to SciFinder Scholar has converted from the client-side version (the version that required downloading and installing to one's computer) completely over to the Web-only version of SciFinder aka SciFinder Web. Users who have the old client version of the software will find that it no longer works and are encouraged to uninstall it from their computers.

Users are instructed to go to the "S" listing of databases and follow the instructions listed there to register for a SciFinder Web account. Alternatively, they may follow the instructions listed below:

Registration Rules:

  • To access SciFinder you must first register for a personal account by clicking on the registration link (see above).
  • You must use your utdallas.edu email address to register. You may pick your own password. Please do not forget your password.
  • After you register, a confirmation email will be sent to your utdallas.edu email account. Click on the link in this email to finish the registration process.
  • Once registered you may access SciFinder through the second link for the login screen above.

Informaworld Downtime on Wednesday, 9/8

The Informaworld website, which hosts 92 online journals to which the library subscribes, will be down for maintenance on Wednesday, Sept. 8th, from 2am-4am. We apologize for any inconvenience to our users.

E-Books Unavailable on Elsevier

The addition of a new service, SciVerse, to Elsevier's ScienceDirect has caused an interruption to e-book service on the site. E-book content to which the library subscribes is inaccessible, whether the user tries to access it via Elsevier's ScienceDirect or through the library catalog. Journal access remains unaffected. We appreciate your patience while we work to resolve this issue.
