Notice for use of SciFinder-n

SciFinder may be used only for educational or academic research activities. All UMaine users must comply with the terms of the SciFinder license agreement, which will appear on each login. Your use of this database may be monitored by Chemical Abstracts Service. They may terminate access for all UMaine SciFinder account holders if they detect possible misuse.

Why do I need a SciFinder-n account?

SciFinder-n is a little different from other databases in Fogler's collection. It requires added security so in order to access it you need to create a personal account. One reason for this is that SciFinder-n gives users the ability to make purchases.
