Electrical Engineering & Computer Science: Find Articles - Using Databases


Migration to SciFinder-n beginning June 16, 2020

  • We will have both versions, SciFinder-N and SciFinder Classic. CAS has not yet set a sunset date for old SciFinder.
  • We don’t need to do anything different with our registration links. SciFinder accounts will work with both versions, even though SciFinder-N isn’t mentioned on the actual registration pages at CAS. You will need to transfer the "Keep Me Posted" alerts manually because they will not transfer over automatically.
  • Anyone who has a SciFinder account now can go to and login.

Finding Articles and Databases

There are many, literally hundreds of databases containing journal articles, conference papers, books, book chapters and other information sources.  They can be found in Databases A-Z and on most Subject Guides on tabs titled "Finding Articles/Using Databases" and similar names.
