In Brief

Library Tip: Free Trial Access to Chemistry Resources
The Kresge Library is pleased to announce free trial access to four resources:

e-EROS (Encyclopedia of Organic Synthesis), which offers a systematic and exhaustive coverage of reagents used in organic synthesis,

SpecInfo on Wiley InterScience, which provides desktop access to some of the largest collections in mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance, and infrared and near infrared spectroscopy,

Organic Reactions, which is a comprehensive database of important synthetic reactions, together with a critical discussion of the reaction and tables that organize all published examples of the topic reactions, and

Organic Syntheses, which describes checked and edited experimental procedures spanning a broad range of synthetic methodologies. This resource also provides chemists with a compendium of new or little known experimental procedures that lead to useful compounds or that illustrate important new developments in methodology.

Follow the links above for access, checking out the "Getting Started" resource on each. Some of these resources require the use of ChemDraw, ISIS, Draw, or another plug-in. Demonstrations on how to use each product are available on each website under "Demos." These four trials run until Friday, March 2. Please contact the Kresge Library with any questions or comments.
