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.
