Kutztown University does not have a site license for STN. Rather KU is charged for each search which is run. Searches can be run by the chemistry faculty, librarians, or trained students. If you wish to obtain a password you must first undergo training. Unfortunately STN searches are rather difficult and can be very expensive. It is all too easy to run a poorly constructed search that yields poor results and costs alot. In order to guard against this problem, training has been made manditory.
