SciFinder Scholar To Be Available Online? Will Pigs Fly? Will The Cubs Win the WS This Year?

.: I just about fell out of my chair when I read this in the Information Today Weekly News Digest:

CAS Offering Web Access to SciFinder

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, announced that it now offers web access to its SciFinder research tool. The web version is designed for situations where web access is preferred and is a convenient option to the powerful client version that is used in corporate, academic, and government organizations around the world.

This new platform is especially designed for the web and does not simply duplicate the look and feel of the current SciFinder product. The newest SciFinder experience will be offered to an expanding set of commercial, government, and academic users as the product launch proceeds throughout the year.

Scientists use SciFinder to explore research topics, browse scientific journals, and stay up-to-date on the latest scientific developments. More information about the newest version of SciFinder can be found at www.cas.org/products/scifindr/sfweb. View a demo at www.cas.org/products/scifindr/sfweb/sfwebflash.html.
