Pauline Beinbrech, Chairman of the Liaison Committee, asked for a
definition of her role. It was agreed that she and Ralph O'Dette
would meet that week together with some of the past Chairmen in
order to sort it out.
Ronald Dueltgen, ASIS Liaison, was not present and there was no
discussion of this activity.
Lucille Wert, SLA Liaison, reported that she had not received information
on the Tri-Society meeting and did not know what SLA
wanted brought up at the Executive Committee session. She mentioned
that the Annual Chemical Information Group meeting would
be held on June 11 in New York City.
Karl Heumann, Nomenclature Committee Liaison, is to publish pertinent
nomenclature information in the Bulletin. B. Lawlor will
check with Editor, Marge Matthews to determine the status to-date.
It was mentioned that the appointment of a Liaison to the History of
Chemistry Division is being considered.
Karen Landsberg, Assistant Secretary, reported on Division
membership. There are presently 1,120 total members, 1,020 of
which are full members. This is an increase over 1983. There will be
a poster at the next meeting to promote membership in the Division.
The brochure will be redone when dues are finalized. Karen
asked for recommendations on any changes to the existing
brochure. Gerard Plateau, Assistant Membership Chairman, contacts
all new members welcoming them to the Division. Additionally,
he contacts all those who resign and attempts to reinstate them.
It was requested that we compile a list of committee members that
includes phone numbers. Chairmen were requested to provide
Ralph O'Dette with lists of their members' names, addresses and
telephone numbers. Ralph agreed to compile an integrated list. It
was suggested that ACS maintain membership lists with both
home and business addresses along with appropriate telephone
numbers. The question arose as to whether or not ACS mailing
labels are on Dialog. Peter Rusch said no, but that he would confirm
A discussion of dues for 1985 also took place. Approval was given
$3.00 (no change from 1984)
ACS proposed that new ACS members be permitted to choose one
free Division Membership for their first year. This has not yet been
Ann Moffett recommended that the Division income, expenses,
etc., be analyzed each Fall and that dues be discussed within the
overall financial framework. It was agreed that Ann, Jean Marcali
and Barbara Prewitt would form a sub-committee to do some financial/budget
research analyses prior to the Philadelphia meeting.
Ann will serve as Chairman and Peter Rusch will participate as his
Barbara Prewitt, Nominating Committee Chairman, reiterated her
earlier request for responses to the call for nominations for the 1984
George Famini, Procedures Manual Editor, requested that each
Division functionary review the current procedures manual and
make recommendations for changes. The Executive Committee will
review all recommendations prior to implementation.
David Johnson, Program Committee Chairman, reported that programs
are in place for meetings throughout the Fall of 1985
(Chicago) and topics are being set for meetings beyond that date. In
Philadelphia (August 1984) CINF will cosponsor a session with the
ACS Committee on Chemical Abstracts. David will contact the
Committee Chairman, Gordon Nelson, to let him know what exactly

of system comparison. The series includes guides

is expected from them (a general overview of the structural
organization of CAS). NLM has offered to give a free training session
at one of our meetings; this will probably be scheduled for
Philadelphia. The Division luncheon in Philadelphia will take a turn
from recent years. Rather than have a luncheon speaker, there will
be "topical" tables at which experts will lead discussion on various
subjects (document delivery, data management, etc.). ISI will host
a boat trip for Division members and the Philadelphia local
Chemical Information Group will also host a social event. In closing,
David stated that the St. Louis meeting came in under budget
and that ACS turned down publication of the symposia on personal
computers because "it wasn't sufficiently cohesive".
4. Other Reports
Herman Skolnik submitted a written request for funds ($500) for the
Pacific Basin Chemical Congress (PAC CHEM). He also requested
that he be able to place funds in the CINF Treasury and have the
Treasurer disburse funds as needed. There was a great deal of
discussion on this topic. In summary, the Chemical Information
Division had agreed in 1981 not to formally participate in PAC
CHEM and this decision has been reaffirmed several times since.
Based on information presented at the Committee meeting a motion
was put forth by G. Revesz which stated that the Division was
not formally participating in PAC CHEM and therefore was not supporting
the program. In view of this, the Division could not provide
financial support nor use of the Treasury. The motion was seconded
by B. Prewitt. Four members voted in favor of the motion, three
opposed and two withheld vote. The motion was subsequently
declared illegal as it was not put forth by a voting member of the Executive
Committee. It was then restated by B. Buntrock, seconded
by B. Prewitt, and again approved by vote.
[This topic was discussed informally after the Executive Committee
Meeting closed; additional information concerning Herman's role
in PAC CHEM was put forth and this will be discussed again at the
Executive Committee Meeting to be held in Philadelphia in August,
