Chemistry for the Non-Chemist Librarian

PRICE: $299.00 Member/ $199.00 Student Member/ $399.00 Non-Member
A hands-on course that introduces learners to the basic principles of the five major divisions of chemistry, chemical terminology and drawing, and other intellectual tools that chemists need to do their work.  The course will be composed of four basic sections: an introduction to chemistry as a science, strategies for effective communication with chemists, an explanation of basic chemical concepts and research questions, and an exploration of the ways in which chemists’ research needs dictate their information needs. 

Note: this course will be held at the nearby Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) campus.  Contact Ted.Baldwin@uc.edu for details.

Extreme Structure Searching

PRICE: $199.00 Member/ $99.00 Student Member/ $299.00 Non-Member

This course will introduce participants to specialized search techniques for small molecules in the chemical literature: profiling organic, organometallic and catalytic substances by substructure, applying structure and substructure search techniques to polymer searching, and using basic substructure and Markush search strategies for patent information retrieval.  Participants will learn advanced organic substructure search techniques and find out where, when, and how to use them.  They will also learn techniques for locating organometallics and polymers using the substructure search techniques taughtand  will examine the application of substructure techniques to patent searching, including learning the basics of Markush searching.
