FALL MEETING NOTES
The Division's program for the Fall meeting in
New York City, while lengthy, is sufficiently diverse
to hold something of interest to each and everyone
of aus. Apparently addressed to the neophyte, the
Monday morning symposium on communication
aspects of chemical literature seems sophisticated
enough to attract many of the more experienced
among us. Another symposium on searching the
literature of a number of specialized fields includes
petroleum chemicals, textile chemicals, textile
uses and evaluation, rocket construction materials,
rocket propulsion, and photographic chemistry. Included,
too, are reviews of the. Wheat Abstracts
Service and the Tobacco Literature Service. Two
full-day symposia will be concerned with information
system planning and design considerations and
with the role of science information in helping to
solve the world food problems. A symposium on
patentability of chemical inventions is scheduled for
Friday morning. The general papers listed for Wednesday
presentation provide an insight into current
storage and retrieval systems. In all, 40 papers will
be presented during the meeting, which runs from
Monday morning, 9 September, through Friday
noon, 13 September 1963. Abstracts of these papers
can be found in another section of this issue.
Our luncheon on 11 September 1963 at the New
York meeting is being sponsored also by the Divisions
of Chemical Education and Analytical Chemistry.
Following an idea generated by DCL, the
three Divisions have set aside this hour to honor
Professor M. G. Mellon, who has contributed so
extensively to these three areas of chemistry. A
full turn-out of DCL'ers will insure a heart-warming
and gratifying tribute to a man who so well deserves
our esteem and appreciation.
All meetings will be held at the Sheraton-Atlantic
Hotel in New York City. Remember to attend the
Divisional Business Meeting on Wednesday afternoon
at 3:30 P.M. and the usually interesting and
stimulating Open Meeting of the Committee on
Chemical Documentation, which is planned for
Thursday afternoon at 3:00 P.M.
COMMITTEE ON CHEMICAL DOCUMENTATION
Among the varied topics discussed at the Business
Meeting of the Committee on Chemical Documentation
during the Atlantic City meeting in September
1962 was the suggestion the Committee
undertake or sponsor projects of value to the Division.
Suggested projects included:
A. Preparation and updating of bibliographies on
B. Handbooks or guides to chemical terminology
and notation schemes.
C. A handbook, or assembly and distribution of
already published papers, on organization of
D. A study of documentation activities in other
divisions of the ACS.
E. An abstracting service on literature of documentation
for members of the division.
Dr. Fred R. Whaley, who represents DCL on
the Liaison Committee with ADI on Information
Retrieval Terminology reports that the Committee
met at the ADI December 1962 Florida meeting.
The Committee will be concerned with information
retrieval in its widest sense and with allied subjects.
Terms in related areas covered by other disciplines
will not be defined, but may be included in a glossary.
The Committee plans to study "Guidelines
for Definition Preparation," when this publication
becomes available from the American Standards
Association. Fred assures us that he is working
assiduously on the editing and revising of his share'
of the draft definitions that have already been collected.
In the first three months of 1963 the Division's
income from dues, advertising, etc., totalled
$529.00; expenditures amounted to $456.35. Our
cash balance as of 20 March 1963 was $4,645.14,
according to Dr. Eugene Garfield, Treasurer.
