2.   DATABASES
     A. SCIFINDER SCHOLAR UPDATES SEARCH SOFTWARE
2006 versions of the SciFinder Scholar chemical literature search software are available for both Windows and Macintosh platforms. SciFinder Scholar is the expanded electronic version of Chemical Abstracts. It includes citations and abstracts for journal articles and other materials on chemistry and related areas, covering the literature from 1907 to present

Older versions of the software will not be supported after March 31. Updating instructions are posted on the library guide at library.umaine.edu/science/scifinder.htm . The new Macintosh version is an interim release for OS X, with another update scheduled for release later this year, and supports the Safari browser. Macintosh users upgrading their software will need a new copy of the UMaine site preferences file. This file is available on the SciFinder Scholar installation CD-ROM, which can be checked out from the Media Resource Center.

For more information about SciFinder Scholar contact Nancy Curtis at nancy.curtis@umit.maine.edu or 581-1679.
