BUSINESS MEETING NOTES
Dr. Carleton C. Conrad, Chairman, presided
at the business meeting, which was attended by
Dr. Eugene Garfield, Treasurer, reported that
for the period January 1 to March 20, 1964, income
was $949. 93; expenses were $249. 00. The
cash balance at the end of this period was
$5, 026.12. Total membership of the Division
was 874, including 738 full members and 136
Program plans for the remainder of 1964 and
for 1965 were summarized by Dr. Conrad. The
following suggestions for future programs were
received from the floor:
(1) a one- or two-day session at Chemical Abstracts
either concurrent with the ACS meeting
in Detroit or on the Friday and Saturday following
the meeting, with the possibility of chartered
transportation to Columbus from Detroit.
(2) a "progress report" on their current projects
bythe Chemical Abstracts Service at each
of the national meetings.
(3) a paper or series of papers on chemical information
networks for the entire country.
Dr. Helen F. Ginsberg, Chairman of the Committee
on Chemical Documentation, noted that
her committee had re-opened consideration of
ways of making thesis material more readily
available to the chemical community because
they feel that Dissertation Abstracts does not
provide sufficient coverage, e. g., it does not
cover M. S. theses.
Dr. Erick Hoegberg inquired about possible interest
in setting up a centralized source of information
for chemical marketing activities. As
a result of his inquiry, Dr. Hoegberg was asked
to find out more specifically what would be involved
in setting up such a center to provide information
on commodities, processes, and
companies. He will check with the Division of
Chemical Marketing and Economics to determine
their interest in such a project.
An interest was shown, through comments from
those present, in activities in chemical documentation
outside the United States. The question
was asked as to whether there was any cooperation
between the Division and its foreign
counterparts. It was suggested that "progress
reports" from such counterparts might be presented
from time to time before the Division.
Dr. Herman Skolnik commented that he felt that
Chemical Abstracts should be the index to use
when looking for information on chemical documentation.
This is presently not possible because
of Chemical Abstracts' lack of coverage
of the field.

REQUEST FOR PROBLEMS
Does this sound strange since we all have
so many already? Not really, if the most
common ones can be discussed in depth for
At the Open Meeting of the Committee on
Chemical Documentation in Chicago next September
we would like to put on the agenda for
discussion problems that have been suggested
by the membership at large. All proposals for
topics to be discussed will be carefully evaluated
by the committee. Those chosen will be
published with the September program so that
you will have time to think about them in advance
of the meeting.
Please send all suggestions to:
