Library Tip: Chemistry Dictionary for Microsoft Office and Open Office

Don't you hate it when you are typing up a paper, and MS Word says that you misspelled "diol," "methylene," or "pyrene"? It makes you want to ignore the spell checker altogether! One solution is to download the free chemistry dictionary, written by an organic chemist, from http://www.chemistry-blog.com/dictionary/. It takes just a minute, is compatible with MS Office (Windows or Mac) and Open Office (Windows or Linux) and next time you are typing "tolualdehyde" or "phenanthrene," you won't get those squiggly red lines under your words. For more information, contact the Kresge Library Help Desk, x4-8705 or helplib@scripps.edu.
