Setting Up Your New Individual SciFinder Account

Before you proceed, note that access to the SciFinder database is restricted to current DePaul students, staff and faculty for educational and non-commercial use only.

Setting up your new individual SciFinder account is a TWO-STEP process:

 

STEP 1: ACTIVATE YOUR DEPAUL EMAIL ACCOUNT

The SciFinder account registration process requires that you first have an active DePaul email account--in which you will receive a link to complete your registration.

STUDENTS: 

 FACULTY & STAFF:

 

STEP 2: REGISTER YOUR NEW SCIFINDER ACCOUNT

All current DePaul students, staff and faculty seeking to use SciFinder must first register and set up their individual SciFinder account by clicking HERE 

Registration Essentials:

  • On the registration form, you must enter the address for your active @mail.depaul.edu student email account (".....@depaul.edu" for faculty/staff)
  • Pay attention to the password tips or you'll have trouble registering and/or logging into SciFinder
  • After submitting the completed registration form, you will receive an email (in your DePaul email account) from CAS (@cas.org) that includes a link to complete the registration process.

 

LOGGING INTO YOUR NEW SCIFINDER ACCOUNT

Once your account registration has been activated, you can log into SciFinder here, or via any of the links marked SciFinder provided in this Research Guide, or through the library website A-Z Databases list.

SciFinder is comptible with all major browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari & Explorer.  It is strongly recommended that you add the cas.org domain to 'allowed' websites in your browser's pop-up blocker management tool, thereby ensuring the proper appearance of pop-up windows associated with SciFinder's "Link To Other Sources" full text linking tool. 

If you encounter any difficulty registering or accessing your SciFinder account, please advise the Chemistry Subject Librarian, or contact Ask A Librarian.
