As a result of your feedback, the Libraries have provided a link to the Cambridge Structural Database of small crystal structures through our website. To access it, go to https://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/indexes/csd and click Connect.
Full access to this database is made available courtesy of the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre, which currently has an office on Busch campus. Thank you to Amy Sarjeant and Paul Sanschagrin of the CCDC for helping to make this happen.
When on campus, you will be automatically validated through your IP address. Limited searching is also available for free to all users, regardless of location. However, in order to utilize full functionality of the CSD, you will need to create an account and download additional software. This can be done through the link provided above, by clicking on the blue text in the first paragraph that says “click here”. Users will then be required to log in with their NetID and password, and after validation will be provided with a site license number and access code, which can be entered on the CSD site.
I hope this makes access to the CSD more convenient for you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
