Top Sessions for Librarians & Information Professionals at the 256th ACS National Meeting

Opinions are of the author and not necessarily those of ACS or ACS Publications

I just flipped my calendar from July to August, and that means the 256th ACS National Meeting & Exposition is right around the corner. ACS Publications will be in Boston from August 19-23, 2018.

These are the sessions I have at the top of my list and I recommend them for librarians and information professionals:

CINF Scholarships for Scientific Advancement: Student Poster Competition

Sunday, August 19: 6:30-8:30 PM

Westin Boston Waterfront, Galleria

See the latest student research in chemical information and cheminformatics at this reception and poster session. Scholarships sponsored by ACS Publications.


PRES: Growing with Project SEED: 50 years and 10,000+ students

Monday, August 20: 8:30-11:30 AM

Sheraton Boston Hotel, Back Bay D

I am excited to hear from students who have benefited from Project SEED funding and where their careers have taken them.


CINF: Publishing Chemical Data

Monday, August 20: 8:30 AM-12:10 PM, 1:30-5:35 PM

Westin Boston Waterfront, Lewis

Co-sponsored by ETHX, ORGN

With the importance of sharing data in research, what are the standards, formats, and logistics behind this? I am looking forward to hearing more about the issues and hopefully learn more about practical solutions.


CINF: Chemistry Librarians of the Future

Tuesday, August 21: 8:20-11:55 AM, 1:30-5:30 PM

Westin Boston Waterfront, Lewis

Co-sponsored by CHED

Chemistry librarianship has been shifting with the changes in chemical information and institutions. What are librarians doing in the library, classroom, etc. that are changing? How has technology affected this? I am looking forward to hearing from librarians who will be sharing their work.
