It is possible that you will be unable to begin working with SciFinder immediately because all seats for the web version of SciFinder are currently in use. We have 7 seats available. If so, try logging in later. If the problem persists, contact your site administrator at the Kelvin Smith Library, Yuening Zhang, Chemistry Librarian, at 216-368-5310 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
An electronic journal (ejournal, e-journal, ej, etc.) is a digitized or online version of a printed journal, such as the Physical Review A. Like most ejournals, this journal exists in both print and electronic formats. Collectively, the Case libraries provide access to thousands of electronic journals. This includes journals that are licensed independently by the Case libraries, journals in the OhioLINK Electronic Journal Center, and a select number of journals that are freely available over the World Wide Web.
Users should be aware that many titles licensed by Case are not accessible from the OhioLINK EJC. An example of this is Science Online, the Web version of Science Magazine.
A database is a collection of information organized into a particular format. Every item in a database has its own record and each of these records is itself divided into specific fields of information (e.g., author, title, etc.) In this respect, a telephone book can be defined as a database.
An electronic research database is a computerized collection of information in digital format. The Case libraries provide access to several hundred research databases, many of which include the full text of journal and newspaper articles. View Research Databases for a complete list of databases provided by the Case Libraries.
Users should be aware that several titles subscribed by Case are not accessible from the OhioLINK Research Databases list. An example of this is IEEE Xplore. IEEE Xplore provides full text access to IEEE transactions, journals, magazines and conference proceedings published since 1988 and all current IEEE standards.
If you are a student, faculty, or staff at Case, you may access the databases with software-free remote authentication to OhioLINK electronic databases and journals. When you're away from your own computer or away from campus, logon to OhioLINK and choose a database or electronic journal.
You'll be prompted to enter Case as your school, your name and Case Account Number (your SS# is no longer used), and your library
For current Case enrolled and employed individuals, it's a simple way to have 2 hours of remote access to OhioLINK-only electronic content, and you can reconnect as often as you need to use the reources! Use any computer with a current web-browsr. (Remote authentication to Case-only resources requires VPN software on your computer.) Use PIN authentication for OhioLINK-only resources across the U.S. and around the world!
