NOTE: Users must agree to abide by the terms of service as described in the registration process. Users are prohibited from sharing their login credentials with anyone. Users are responsible for all activity on their account. Unauthorized sharing of passwords or excessive downloads may lead to suspension of Tulane's account or cancellation of your personal account.

NOTE: ACS, the company that owns SciFinder, is pretty cautious and tends to turn off access to users if they suspect suspicious activity which may include new activity after a long period of un-use. You can contact them directly and ask that they reinstate access  - simply make sure you are using your Tulane information.

NOTE: If you have difficulty accessing the database, try again at an off-peak time such as early in the morning or during the evening.
