100 Years of CAS

CAS (Chemical Abstracts Service) is 100 this year. Learn more about its century of service.

BSU Libraries Holdings
BSU Libraries have the print edition of Chemical Abstracts back to its inception in 1907. You can find all editions from 1907-2002 in Bracken Library's 4th floor West near the theses.

In 2002, we stopped the print edition to go with CAS's new online database: SciFinder Scholar. SciFinder can be accessed only from the SHSL and only by one user at a time. Just this year, we have added the SSM (Substructure Searching Module) to our SciFinder subscription which allows researchers to find references and substance information for substances based on constituent components rather than relying on the whole molecular structure.
