actual research. Also, a new breed of information consultants has emerged who offer a wide range of services
from a typical literature search, an evaluation of a software program, to the design of workstations and complete
Under these circumstances, we might question whether our mission statement, critical issues, and Divisional objectives
(recently reprinted on page 1 in the Summer 1986 issue of the Chemical Information Bulletin) are adequately
attuned to your future needs and to those of the Society members at large. The Divisional Executive Committee
will have special planning sessions this year specifically to address these issues.
Here is a summary of the far-reaching tasks that other Divisional Committees have undertaken this year (their listings
are on page 12 of this issue):
a. Archivist/Historian: to continue preparing an inventory of archival documents and to transfer the selected
documents to the Center for History of Chemistry;
b. Awards: to coordinate current activities related to the Divisional Awards (Herman Skolnik Award and the proposed
Best Paper Award), to work toward establishing the Herman Skolnik Award as the ACS National Award
in Chemical Information, and to participate in the selection process of the ACS Columbus and Dayton Sections'
c. Education: to continue creating chemical information searching modules tailored to specific online vendors
as well as to specific chemical disciplines as learning material for computerized database searching, to act
as a clearinghouse for chemical information instructional materials, and to provide expert advice on teaching
chemical information science in academic and industrial environments;
d. Long-Range Planning: to help define (together with the Executive Committee) the long-range goals of the Division;
to investigate ways of promoting the understanding and most efficient utilization of chemical informaiton,
e.g., by preparing a modular presentation for Local Section meetings; and to look into novel ways of programming
at the National and Regional Meetings;
e. Program: to plan technical sessions for the ACS National and Regional Meetings, including the 1988 North
American and 1989 Pacific Basin Societies Chemical Congresses, and, thinking as far ahead as 1990, to conduct
preliminary planning for the 4th Tri-Society (ACS/ASIS/SLA) Symposium.
I am looking forward to serving as your chairman this year and to receiving your comments, contributions, and
suggestions. I hope to see many of you in Denver this spring.
