The American Chemical Society’s CAS SciFinder resource has now been upgraded to SciFinder-n.
Access to the new platform remains unchanged. Registered users can sign in with their existing username and password. New users should follow the ‘registration information’ link from the library’s Find Databases page to set up an individual SciFinder-n account.
The upgraded resource is described as follows:
In addition to the reference, substance, reaction and supplier content found in CAS SciFinder, CAS SciFinder-n includes relevance-ranked results, step-by-step procedures and protocols, citation mapping, biosequence searching, retrosynthetic analysis, patent landscape mapping, touch-screen enabled structure drawing and much more—all accessible in a simple, easy-to-use interface.
Attempts to access the old CAS SciFinder interface will be automatically redirected to CAS SciFinder-n, so browser bookmarks should be updated as required.

THE TECHNICAL ISSUES preventing login requests submitted through the NTU Single Sign-on service from resolving correctly reported earlier have now been resolved.
Although the service will not return to full capacity for several hours, it is already possible to log in to the full range of available library resources and services (which rely on SSO) using an NTU university username and password.
Technical issues affecting the NTU Single Sign-on service mean that many electronic library resources are currently inaccessible from off-campus. Many library resources and services that require university username and password authentication on-campus are also affected. Teams across the university are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
