Extractions: Over the past five years Internet resources have grown dramatically. The Internet is now regarded as a stable medium of communication. However, Internet documents are not necessarily evaluated and do not need to comply with any standard. Therefore, intellectual integrity of information posted there is not always guaranteed. More recently, the Internet serves as an effective means of disseminating information about products and services of publishers and online vendors, and of research, teaching, and learning activities of academic institutions, and of government information. This is a select list of useful Internet resources in chemistry and related disciplines worldwide. ChemDex Plus. A database of chemical resources compiled by ChemWeb.com in collaboration with the University of Sheffield and edited by Mark Winter. It contains more than 4,000 browsable Web sites. Each site is reviewed and evaluated by a ChemWeb editor. The arrangement is hierarchical, starting from broad headings to narrow specialized topics. This new interface will eventually expand to include thousands of documented Web sites; reviewed Web sites for selected topics, directories of people, and institutions; and a new ChemWeb conference diary.

Extractions: Announcement : October 2003 Introduction Scope and Eligibility Budget High School Supplement Online Application Procedure ... Award Recipients: Scholar/Fellow Program Introduction In 1987, the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation introduced the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Scholar/Fellow Program for Undergraduate Institutions. Since then, 68 colleges have received support for research and teaching by more than 200 Scholars and postdoctoral Fellows combined. Of the Fellows who have completed the program, almost ninety percent subsequently accepted full-time tenure-track positions at undergraduate institutions. This document provides details about the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Scholar/Fellow Program for Undergraduate Institutions. In general, 10 awards of $100,000 or $105,000 each are made annually. The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Scholar/Fellow Program for Undergraduate Institutions is designed to attract talented Ph.D. recipients to careers as teacher-scholars in chemistry, chemical engineering, and biochemistry departments of undergraduate colleges and universities, guided by accomplished faculty from these institutions. This goal is integrated within a program that provides a grant to the institution on behalf of an established faculty member, designated the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Scholar. The grant is to be used in part by the Scholar to appoint a recent Ph.D. recipient as a Camille and Henry Dreyfus Fellow. The Fellow would then collaborate in research with the Scholar and teach in the department.

Extractions: Vol. 57 No. 11 By Francie Bauer L ike all information available over the Internet, chemical information has proliferated rapidly. For scientists as well as reference librarians, getting accurate information quickly is critical. Much progress has been made in collecting, building, organizing, and verifying chemical information. Since the Internet is an ongoing, amorphous process, links may change or be temporarily unavailable, but there are many sites to choose from now. Yet it is still a "buyer beware" market. There is much free information and many sites will link directly to other sites with still more information, but there is no guarantee that the records or information obtained has been checked, verified, juried, or refereed by peers in the scientific community, which is an important consideration for providers of scientific information. Chemical information is of potential use and interest across a wide variety of academic disciplines as well as in business, corporate, pharmaceutical, and industrial companies. Researchers in animal science, molecular biology, chemical engineering, materials science, plant and soil science, botany, biology, zoology, veterinary science, pharmacology, and medicine can all have need of chemical information. With the current interest and emphasis on protecting the environment, many businesses and industries will also need current, accurate chemical information.

FECS Congress About FECS The Federation of European Chemical Societies and Professional Institutions (FECS) is a voluntary organisation. Its object is to promote co-operation in Europe between those non-profit-making scientific and technical societies in the field of chemistry whose membership consists largely of individual qualified chemists and whose interests include the science and/or practice of chemistry. It was founded in 1970. FECS is a partner in AllChemE (Alliance for Chemical Sciences and Technologies in Europe) and is an Associated Organisation of IUPAC FECS provides a powerful single voice for chemists and the chemical sciences in Europe through its activities and development of policy. The organisation can draw upon significant resources, having over 40 member societies which in total represent some 200,000 individual chemists in academia, industry and government in over 30 countries across Europe.

Extractions: CUR was originally created by and for chemists. We are the oldest and largest division of CUR, and many of CURs current programs were initially designed and then implemented by chemists. Although CUR now welcomes scientists of all stripes and many others, nearly everything CUR does benefits chemists. Below are brief descriptions of how some of these activities are relevant to chemists.

At the secondary school level, students choose between systems: Gymnasium or Hauptschule , which prepare a student for university education; or Handelsakademie or Hoehere Technische Bundeslehranstalt , which provide a more technical or vocational education. At the university level, degrees include Diplomingenieur or Magister (master's level) and Doktor (doctoral level). Types of courses can include lectures, seminars and labs. Regular class participation is usually required. The grading scale is similar to the U.S. system except the system is numerical and a "D" grade equivalent does not exist. Grades range from 1 ( sehr gut , generally equivalent to a U.S. "A" grade) to 5 ( nicht genügend , generally equivalent to a U.S. "F" grade). The academic year runs from October to June and is divided into semesters: winter ( Wintersemester ) and summer ( Sommersemester Wintersemester generally runs from October 1 to January 31; Sommersemester runs from about March 1 to June 30.

Extractions: Map from used by permission of Microsoft Corporation. Higher Education. In the United Kingdom, higher education is available in universities, colleges and institutes of higher education. The typical undergraduate degree (B.A. Hons.) takes three years to complete in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and four years in Scotland. Traditional universities tend to emphasize academic preparation in the arts and sciences, while newer institutions may emphasize more practical studies such as business and the technological professions. The 1980s and 90s brought major changes to higher education in the United Kingdom. Traditionally an elitist system available to very few, the emphasis now is on broadening access and greatly increasing the numbers of students attending higher education. Access to higher education still is largely determined by the "A" Level examinationsspecialized exams in up to four subjects taken at age 18. However, university admissions has opened up in recent years allowing entry to students lacking traditional "A" level entry qualifications as well as to non-traditional students. While in the past, students were not expected to pay tuition or fees and often received full grants for room and board, there has been an increasing emphasis on students sharing a greater share of their university expenses. More emphasis is placed on independent, self-directed study in the United Kingdom than in the United States. Students write more and take fewer exams. Modules often consist of lectures, seminars and tutorials. Degrees are awarded as 1st Class, Upper 2nd Class, Lower 2nd Class, and 3rd Class. Individual modules are usually graded on a percentile basis, with 40-45 a minimal pass (D), and 70 and higher considered very good (A). The academic year runs from September or October to June on the quarter system, although some universities are shifting to a semester system.

The collaboration among Cornell University, its Weill Medical College, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and The Rockefeller University will include the joint recruitment of a dozen new faculty members, reflecting the level of investment demanded by the technological demands of science today. The joint venture was announced at a news conference this morning at Rockefeller by Arnold J. Levine, president of Rockefeller; Harold Varmus, president of Memorial Sloan-Kettering; Hunter Rawlings, president of Cornell University. Also speaking was Lisa Staiano-Coico, senior associate dean for research at Weill Cornell, representing Antonio M. Gotto, dean of the medical college, who was out of the country.

Extractions: USA Contact: Dr John M Malin Tel: Fax: E-mail: email@example.com Web: http://www.acs.org/portal/Chemistry The American Chemical Society (ACS) is a not-for-profit membership organisation, founded in 1876 and chartered by a 1937 Act of the U.S. Congress. With a membership of nearly 163,000 chemists, chemical engineers, and other practitioners of the chemical sciences, it is the world's largest scientific society. ACS is recognised as a world leader in fostering scientific education and research, and promoting the public's understanding of science. The Society publishes 38 journals and magazines. The ACS also operates Project Bookshare, launched in 1984 through the Society's Committee on International Activities. Many ACS members had collections of past issues of chemistry journals and books that they were no longer using and were willing to share with colleagues needing them. ACS members, institutions and others are encouraged to donate back issues of chemistry professional journals and books (not older than ten years unless considered a `classic'). Donated back issues of publications are made available to a number of chemistry degree-granting small US colleges which receive no public support, and also to degree-granting institutions in low-income developing countries and in some appropriate institutions in eastern and central Europe.
