CAS agreement with Brazilian universities expands access to SciFinder Scholar

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) has announced the continuation of an agreement with the Brazilian Ministry of Education CAPES group to provide the SciFinder Scholar research tool to a consortium of Brazillian Universities. SciFinder Scholar and the renewed agreement was featured at a special event in connection with the Seminário Nacional de Bibliotecas Universitárias (National Seminar for University Libraries) in Salvador, Brazil, in late October.

In the third year of the CAS agreement with CAPES, more than 150 Brazilian academic institutions have made SciFinder Scholar available to university students and other academic researchers, permitting them to explore CAS’s databases of chemical and related scientific literature, patents and chemical substances. This important group of universities joins hundreds of other schools around the world now providing science students and faculty with SciFinder Scholar.

'As so many others have done at universities around the world, Brazilian students will find SciFinder Scholar makes the exploration of scientific databases easy to use, enjoyable and productive in their research,' said Dr Catharina Maulbecker, CAS vice president, marketing and sales.

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process

Feature

Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory

Feature

This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.

Feature

This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value

Feature

This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
