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.
