CHEMICAL-COMPANY ABSTRACTS BULLETINS
TO VISIT "CHEMICAL ABSTRACTS"
Through the courtesy of Drs. E. J. Crane, Dale B.
Baker, and Charles L. Bernier, editors of chemicalcompany
abstracts bulletins are invited to visit
Chemical Abstracts on Friday, January 16, 1959, for a
tour of the new Chemical Abstracts building and an
opportunity to ask questions. No formal program is
planned; as Dr. Crane has put it, "we are throwing
open the front door with a welcome sign beside it."
Chemical Abstracts has placed no limits on the size
of the group attending, "at least within reason."
To permit the largest possible representation, however,
the Division of Chemical Literature, which is
informally sponsoring this visit, is suggesting that
each chemical company send only one representative.
So that questions can be sophisticated and thus
of value to all, moreover, the Division suggests that
representatives be the actual editors of chemicalconpany
abstracts bulletins or their immediate supervisors.
"Chemical companies" will be interpreted
in the usual broad sense to include petroleum refiners,
rubber and plastics companies, pharmaceutical
companies, etc., but since Chemical Abstracts is
truly "chemical," this visit is not designed to include
editors of company bulletins in other fields.
The Division has appointed Mr. B. H. Well (Technical
Information Division, Esso Research and Engineering
Company, P.O. Box 51, Linden, New Jersey)
to serve as coordinator for this visit. Abstractsbulletin
editors desiring to attend should contact
Mr. Weil before December 15, 1958, for a reservation
and for further details. The Division is indeed
happy to cooperate in this activity and is most
grateful to Chemical Abstracts for making it possible.
