A CLARION CALL
TO DIVISION MEMBERS
This is an invitation to all members to become
involved in the affairs of the Division. The vitality
of an organization is dependent upon member participation.
Only by continued renewal and replacement
of the workers in a group can an organization
maintain its usefulness and continue to grow. It is
important that the voices of the individual members
Opportunities for participation in the affairs
of the Division are numerous. Here are a few suggestions.
The membership committee is frequently in
need of workers in a specific geographical area.
The compilers of the Annotated Bibliography in Chemical
Literature are often short of contributors.
Suggestions for discussion at the Open Meeting of
the Committee on Chemical Documentation are always
welcomed as are suggestions for the programs. Finally
criticism is a valuable item in any organization
and helps the officers and committee chairmen
evaluate their efforts. Let us hear from you, the
members, so that we may do our task of serving the
Division more effectively.
I am happy to announce the appointment of two new
Committee Chairmen. Ethaline Cortelyou, who is a
talented technical editor, is Chairman of the Bulletin
Committee and Editor of CHEMICAL LITERATURE.
Isaac Welt who recently joined the staff of American
University is Chairman of the Committee on Instruction
in Chemical Literature. They both bring much
enthusiasm to their new assignments and will serve
the Division well.
I hope that you will all find the 1965 meetings
interesting and stimulating, that you will return to
your jobs refreshed and eager to explore new methods.
If a meeting accomplishes this, it is a success.
Come to the Business Meeting and voice your
opinions about what the Division is or is not doing.
See you in Detroit.
Harriet Geer, Chairman

COMMITTEE ON CHEMICAL DOCUMENTATION
SEE YOU THERE'
The Medical Library Association will hold its annual
meeting in Philadelphia from Sunday, May 30, to
Thursday, June 3, 1965. The program includes discussions
of personnel administration; the various
problems of medical libraries, including pharmacy,
nursing, dental, and veterinary medicine; local, regional,
and national library cooperation; evaluating
information and indexing services; library technology;
and courses in continuing education, such as
basic punched card techniques.
Details may be obtained from Miss Carole Butcher,
Graduate School of Library Science, Drexel Institute
of Technology, 33rd and Chestnut St., Philadelphia.
The second annual National Colloquium on Information
Retrieval will be held April 23-24, 1965 at the
University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. The theme
will be "Toward a National Information System." Cosponsors
are The Moore School of Electrical Engineering
of the University of Pennsylvania and the Delaware
Valley Chapters of the American Documentation
Institute and Association of Computing Machinery.
Further details may be obtained from Mr. Ralph
Garofano, Institute for Scientific Information, 325
Chestnut St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19106.
On a trial basis, the "Annotated Bibliography on
Chemical Documentation" has been omitted from this
issue of Chemical Literature. Division members are
urged to try the "Literature Notes" section of American
Documentation since the "Literature Notes" section
is being offered in reprint form by the American
Documentation Institute as a separate quarterly
subscription for $4.00 per year.
It is hoped that it will be possible to increase
the coverage of "Literature Notes" and, in the near
future, to establish it as a separate publication.
The availability of the separate reprint section is
a start toward that objective.
Members of the Division of Chemical Literature
are urged to support this ADI effort to provide all
documentation abstracts in a single Journal. Liaison
with ADI will be discussed by the Executive Commit(continued
