Library Tip: Beilstein Available Campus-Wide
The Kresge Library is pleased to announce the campus-wide availability of Beilstein, the organic chemistry database from Elsevier MDL. Beilstein provides chemical structure, reaction, formula, and physical property literature going back to 1779. For an overview of Beilstein, check out its brochure. Previously, the database was only available to individual labs.

To access the database, download the Beilstein CrossFire Commander client software at: http://www.scripps.edu/library/software/beilstein/.  Or, from the Kresge Library home page select Beilstein under "Software Downloads." The latest version of the client (v.7) is available for PC only. Mac OS X users can use version 6 of the client, but only within the Classic 9 operating system.

Many help guides are available, including the Quick User Guide, Workshop Guide (self-paced tutorial), and Version 6 for Mac help.
