This resource is available at special workstations located in Pfahler Hall, including the Chemistry Library, as well as on the main floor of the Myrin Library. For additional information, please contact David Mill, Information Technology Librarian at or ext. 2301 (610-409-3000).

SciFinder Scholar is available only to Ursinus students, faculty, and staff.
