The username and password submitted to SciFinder should now allow you to log in to SciFinder Scholar when on-campus at Slippery Rock University, or off-campus through the KLN hub, which prompts you to input your SRU login and password to use Bailey Library databases while on an off-campus computer.

When using SciFinder Scholar through the KLN hub (off-campus), you may be told that there is a security certificate error. You may continue past this error to access SciFinder Scholar.
