IScienceSearch: The Internet Search Engine For Chemists & Biologists

iScienceSearch is a completely new further development of CWM Global Search

iScienceSearch is an innovative Internet search tool for scientists that want to search for chemical data on the Internet - it makes a federated search over many scientific databases on the Internet.

  • Search the Internet by structure!
  • Find structures for synonyms!
  • Submit several compound in one search - use SDFiles.
  • Find biological effects of a compound.
  • Get access to information that was until recently a very costly service.

 iScienceSearch allows searching the Internet by structure, synonym, CAS Registry Number and free text. In the background, we return structure, names and CAS Registry Numbers* within seconds.  A search by name can automatically invoke another search by structure and/or CAS Registry, or any combination of these. iScienceSearch presently searches more than 60 free chemical and pharma relevant databases  -- containing more than 100 million pages which associate chemical structures with data.

DART-Europe: E-theses Portal

DART-Europe logo

DART-Europe is a partnership of research libraries and library consortia who are working together to improve global access to European research theses. DART-Europe is endorsed by LIBER (Ligue des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherche), and it is the European Working Group of the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD).

The DART-Europe partners help to provide researchers with a single European Portal for the discovery of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs), and they participate in advocacy to influence future European e-theses developments. DART-Europe offers partners a European networking forum on ETD issues, and may provide the opportunity to submit collaborative funding applications to achieve DART-Europe's vision for ETDs.
