SciFinder ScholarA new version of SciFinder Scholar — the online database for journal literature in biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, and materials science — is now available at Galvin Library. SciFinder Scholar 2007 has been installed on all library public computers and is ready to use. You can also download the new version for use on your own computer here. (Please note that SciFinder can only be used from on-campus computers that have an IIT IP address).

SciFinder Scholar 2007 offers powerful new features:

Categorize references This tool enables you to sort and evaluate information in your answer sets by creating a histogram for easy analysis. Categorize separates related references on the basis of their associated CA index terms. With categorize, you can reassemble the different subsets in unique ways creating opportunities for new insights.

Save answers Now you can save answer lists of references, substances, or reactions and re-use them later in other SciFinder Scholar sessions.

Combine answer sets The combine tool makes it possible to focus on a particular research topic in new ways by combining the substances, reactions, and references in an active answer set with those in a previously saved one. By employing various options of Combine, Intersect, or Remove, you can manipulate and customize the information contained in these combined answer sets.

Print structures in grid format Gain a unique comparative view of multiple chemical structures by printing them side by side in this handy grid arrangement.
