Bio-Rad KnowitAll U Spectra Database

We are currently running a trial of Bio-Rad’s KnowitAll U Spectra Database until June 28, 2013.

“KnowItAll U provides users with a wide array of chemistry tools and unlimited access to 1.4 million spectra (NMR, IR, Raman, MS, UV-Vis)—the world’s largest collection of spectral data.  Users can access the entire spectral collection via the KnowItAll AnyWare™ web browser interface—a full suite of tools to search, manage, and analyze spectroscopic, chromatographic and chemical information; predict NMR spectra; draw structures; create reports; and more.”

SciFinder Goes Web

Over the past few years Rodgers Library has offered two ways to access SciFinder (our popular chemistry database):  a client version loaded on local desktops and a Web version.   CAS likes the Web version and we do too.  So beginning in the fall of 2010, Rodgers Library will discontinue support for the client version.  SciFinder Web is wonderful.  Our chemistry LibGuide describes the new access.  Enjoy!
