What's in the Guide

SciFinder reminder--SF is primarily available for current UW students, faculty, and staff only. Further, it is only available for  educational and UW research needs. Do not lend your account to anyone else. Researchers who consult with companies may not use SFS for the company's research.  Non-UW users may check at any reference desk and request access for educational uses.There are obviously many gray areas so please feel free to consult me.  Susanne
