Copyright Reminder 2013

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is both my duty and my pleasure to inform you that Stanford's annual Copyright Reminder is now available on The Stanford Libraries website:

New Report - Supporting the Changing Research Practices of Chemists

Open Access Vouchers for RSC Journals


The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) recognizes that researchers are often being asked to publish Open Access (OA), but do not have the funding to pay for it directly.

Swain iPads - Check one out!


The above image shows some of the apps that are available on Swain's iPads.

The Swain Library iPad Pilot Program includes four iPad2s that are loaded with a number of apps relevant to the “Mobile Chemist and Chemical Engineer.” We’re hoping that users at all stages of their careers will find these iPads useful. The iPad2s have 32 GB of storage space and WiFi, and also come with a power cable for charging and a padded case. All four iPads circulate for one week.

Be sure to stop by soon and check one out!

JoVE - Chemistry | Applied Physics


Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) is a peer reviewed, PubMed indexed journal devoted to the publication of biological, medical, chemical and physical research in a video format. We recently subscribed to two sections.

JoVE: Chemistry (established in February, 2013) focuses on the methodology within chemistry and chemical preparation across multidisciplinary fields. In addition, this section aims to incorporate the preparation, use and analysis of novel materials and structures.

JoVE: Applied Physics (established in July, 2012) focuses on the experimental disciplines within physics, as well as mechanical and electrical engineering. Interdisciplinary fields such as materials science and chemical physics are welcomed. Instrumentation is encouraged from all fields especially optics, photonics, and astronomy.
