Subject: chemistry references
As of June 28, 1993, a new chemistry library resource "Chemistry
Information" is available for your use in ftp-able form.
"Chemistry Information" is an electronic reference source. Its
purpose is to provide solutions to frequently occuring chemistry
questions through the use of library resources. It is a valuable
reference tool, especially when librarians are not on duty. Its
audience is the undergraduate student; however some of the
information can also be beneficial to graduate students. Not only
chemistry but also engineering, physics, nursing, nutrition, and
health science students can utilize this resource.
"Chemistry Information" covers nomenclature, compound
identification, properties, structure determination, toxicity,
synthesis, registry numbers, and synthesis. For each component it
lists the most appropriate reference resources (online catalog,
databases, indexes, journals, government documents, handbooks,
tables, and/or treatises).
"Chemistry Information" also provides definition of terms, meanings
of acronyms, full form of abbreviations, call numbers, and location
How to acquire "Chemistry Information"? Ftp to ucssun1.sdsu.edu;
directory pub/chemras; use binary; use mget command and the * wild
card symbol to transfer all files in the chemras directory (mget
*.*). Please read the read.me file first.
Since the contents are San Diego State University library
resources, feel free to adapt them to your collection. If you have
