It's only May, but this is my last Chairman's message for the Bulletin! Time flies when you're having
fun....The time has been filled with many activities, not just planning for and following up after National
Meetings, but also "other duties as assigned." It was my privilege to represent the Division on this
year's Patterson Crane award selection jury in Columbus. Presented every other year by the Columbus
and Dayton sections of the ACS, the Award recognizes contributions to the field of chemical information
science and documentation, and is named in honor of Austin M. Patterson and E.J. Crane, both of
whom were editors of Chemical Abstracts. In addition to serving on the award jury, I attended the
award dinner on May 9 in Columbus to represent CINF, and extended CINF's congratulations and best
wishes to the awardee, Dr. Arthur E. Martell, Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Texas A&M University.
He was selected in recognition of his work on establishing standards for the measurement
and evaluation of stability constants of metal chelates in solutions.
We had a productive meeting in Anaheim, and are busy planning for Chicago. Our technical program
will include symposia on many topics of interest to our members, such as Electronic Notebooks and
Collaborative Systems in Research and Development; Use of Chemical Information in Generating New
Compound Leads; and Challenges Presented by Large Databases. In addition, the Skolnik Award Symposium
will be a full-day event, capped by a reception honoring the awardees. A special symposium
will be held to honor the memory of Gerry Vander Stouw. We have another fascinating luncheon
speaker lined up to talk about DNA and dinosaurs, compliments of the Field Museum.
A regular feature of our Fall meetings is a planning session, at which the Executive Committee and
Committee Chairmen address topics of critical importance to the Division. This Fall we will be focusing
on the financial situation of CINF, especially the need for raising funds to support symposium speakers
and other Division activities, and membership concerns. Another issue that continues to concern us
is the need to involve younger, newer members of CINF in Division activities. Please step up and
volunteer for committee assignments. As someone who started out her CINF involvement as a member
of the Program Committee, I can personally attest to the wonderful experience CINF involvement has
been for me, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone with a love of chemistry and an interest
in information issues.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you as Chairman, and I hope to see many of you in Chicago.
