Are you new to U-M? Never used SciFinder-n before?
If you never had a SciFinder account before, or if you are new to U-M (even if you had an account at your previous institution), the first step is to create your individual user name and password . Once created, log onto SciFinder-n with your newly created username and password.
I am not new at U-M but I used old SciFinder before. How do I login to SciFinder-n?
Log onto SciFinder-n here and simply use your current SciFinder username and password. Old SciFinder is no longer available.
Are you trying to access SciFinder-n off campus or using a wireless connection?
There are many reasons why you may not access SciFinder.
Above listed access links to SciFinder are for researchers associated with U-M ONLY
The most common reason is that you are not associated with U-M. It also happens when you are new and your access has not yet been initiated or when you graduate from university and become an alumni.
Note! Emeritus professors shall retain access to all university resources.
If you had a SciFinder account at a previous institution, make sure you are using the one you created at U-M. Accounts created elsewhere will not be recognized on our network.
To confirm your association with U-M, please contact circulation desk at firstname.lastname@example.org
Above listed access links are for researchers associated with U-M Ann Arbor Campus ONLY
Patrons affiliated with a particular campus are only able to authenticate through their campus's proxy server. E.g., Flint faculty they will have to use the Flint proxy server and when off-campus should use links from the Flint Library's website.
Solution: Below is the portion of the Flint Library's database with databases beginning with "S.": https://libguides.umflint.edu/
Scroll down to "SciFinder" and try that link for accessing SciFinder. If the patron is not on the Flint campus they should get a Flint Library page asking for a uniqname and password.
