SciFinder Scholar: New Version Available for Mac OS
An upgraded version (2006) of SciFinder Scholar software for Mac OSX is now available to the UM Ann Arbor campus.
The previous Mac OSX version was basically a twin to the 2004 version for Windows and lacked some features. This release synchronizes the Mac OSX version with the previously released 2006 version for Windows.
For instructions on how to download, install and use the new Mac version, see the Science Library's webpage on SciFinder Scholar.
For more information, or for assistance, contact David Peck, Chemistry Librarian.
