CAS is announcing the discontinuation of the client version of SciFinder on June 30, 2011 for all U.S. and Canadian academic institutions. On this date, all seats at these institutions will access the web version only. SciFinder Scholar is now available on the Web for current students, faculty, and staff at all UC campuses. One time registration is required for new users, then login and search. Off-campus access requires use of the Cisco VPN software. The web version does not require any additional software and is compatible with Windows, Macintosh and Unix-based operating systems.
This selected list will direct you to the databases which will serve you in finding journal articles, conference papers and proceedings. Access can additionally be found via Library Search, MELVYL, and from other Subject Guides, and from Finding Online Resources Link on the Library Website. Usually the output is either in reverse chronological order with the most recent information coming up first or can be changed to be retrieved by a relevance ranking. By using the UC eLink icon, one can quickly discover whether UCI offers access to the fulltext content that is referenced. This may be in the form of a pdf, in html, or re-keyed as part of the database. One can usually eMail the list of relevant retrieved citations, or download the articles to oneself. One can also enter or direct them into a Bibliographic Management Software folder. One can also print articles or content.
If access is not available via the UCI Libraries, one can request a copy of the article or paper via ILL using MELVYL REQUEST or re-entering the full citation in the Library Search ILL request form.
The list is an alphabetical arrangement of the database titles - the primary coverage for Computer Science is probably found via Inspec, ACM Digital Library, and the Web of Science.

Heads up researchers! Beginning FY 2020 (October 2019) Federal funders now require ORCID iD registration for all new fellowship, research training, education, and career development proposals.
(See https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-19-109.html for the original notice.) ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique digital researcher identifiers. These unique identifiers help identify articles written by the same author using various forms of his, her, or their names. This registry also provides a way to link research activities, such as publication and data set creation, to these identifiers. Beyond the federal funding requirements, you’ll be doing the research community a favor by participating – the more the ORCID buy-in, the further along we all get toward the goal of seamless, comprehensive and accurate compilation of individual authors’ works.
