American Chemical Society (ACS) Accreditation
- 6th year review: 2018
4.4 Chemical Information Resources
- A broad range of the peer-reviewed chemical literature must be readily accessible to both faculty and students.
An approved program must provide immediate institutional access to no fewer than 14 current and archival, peer-reviewed journals whose subject matter spans the chemical sciences. At least three of the journals must have a general focus (for example, Science, JACS, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Chemistry – A European Journal, Chemical Communications, etc.), and at least one must come from each area of analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and chemistry education. In addition, the library must provide timely access to journal articles that are not available on site by a mechanism such as interlibrary loan or a document delivery service
Students must have access to technical databases and other resources that enable development of skills in searching the literature, including structure-based searching, and support research and instructional activities.
