ChemBioDraw - SciFinder Direct Linking

A new feature of ChemBioDraw Ultra 14 is the ability to directly link from ChemBioDraw into SciFinder. This new direct link will automatically copy and search the structure and/or reaction you have drawn in ChemBioDraw.

SciFinder at USC operates off of a proxy server. Therefore, you will need to manually tweak some settings to make the direct linking work with your USC credentials. You will find below a link to a SciFinder tutorial on configuring your proxy settings. You can skip steps 1-3 and copy and paste this URL for step 5:

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Michael.


SciFinder FAQ

Q: I'm having issues accessing SciFinder from off-campus and/or on the USC Wireless, what should I do?
A: Most users are able to access SciFinder via the proxy server. Log into the proxy server via the USC Libraries' homepage (click the lock symbol). Then sign into SciFinder with your username and password.

Some users are reporting issues with using just the proxy server to access SciFinder. Please follow these steps:
1. Log into USC's VPN. Information can be found on the ITS Website.
2. Then log into the proxy server via the USC Libraries' homepage (click the lock symbol).
3. Finally, log into SciFinder.

Q: Why can't I access SciFinder on Saturday morning?
A; Often the SciFinder database is down on weekends for updating. Try again later in the day.

Q: Is there a specific web browser I should use?
A: SciFinder works well on Firefox. Internet Explorer and Google Chrome have had problems.
