SciFinder is available via the Internet.  It is for use by current Wichita State University students, faculty, and staff only.  You will need to create a username and password using the registration form below.  You will then use this username and password to access the web version of SciFinder. 

Do not share your username and password with anyone.  It is a violation of the terms of use and will result in loss of access for everyone.

Please note: Depending on the browser being used, a "Security Alert" message may pop-up before you are taken to the SciFinder website.  The SciFinder website is a secure site and requires a certificate to be sent by our server and due to how the certificate must be configured, the name on the certificate does not match the name of the site, which triggers the alert.  This does not mean the security on the computer has been negated so clicking "Yes" to proceed should be safe.
