Improved access to chemical databases for German students

CAS has renewed an agreement to provide its desktop research tool, SciFinder Scholar, to 57 universities and eight schools in Germany. The agreement was made with the North-Rhine Westphalia Service Centre for Libraries, and will provide students with access to the CAS’s databases of chemical information.

The agreement will also provide access to the new improvements made in SciFinder Scholar 2007, to be made available this summer. New features include the ability to group and categorise references and to save results.
