SciFinder

This page describes how to configure EZproxy to work with the web-based version of SciFinder. If you want to configure EZproxy to work with the SciFinder Scholar client program for Macintosh and Windows, see SciFinder Scholar.

The web-based version of SciFinder requires SSL configuration and the following configuration in config.txt/ezproxy.cfg:

Title CAS SciFinder
URL https://scifinder.cas.org/scifinder
Domain cas.org

Note: A setting that should not be used in the configuration settings is "DJ cas.org" because it is known to cause "HTTP 500 Internal Server Error" on IE and "500: Server Error" on Firefox during the SciFinder login process.
