Chemical Abstracts Online Automatic Current Awareness Searches

Now you do not have to remember to run and rerun that search question to keep abreast of new information as it is added to Chemical Abstracts Online (CAS). Instead, use CAS's Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI) service. Submit your search topic to Grace Baysinger and she will set up a “profile” for you.

Topics may consist of authors, subjects, journal titles, chemical names, and chemical structures/substructures. Whenever new information on your topic is added to the CAS database, you will automatically receive a list of citations via electronic mail. This service is limited to current Stanford faculty, students, and academic staff. Please note that search results cannot be used for for-profit activities such as patenting or third-party sales.

To help us process your request, we need the following information:

Name:
Dept:
Status:
Email Address:
Anticipated date of departure from Stanford:
