Chemical Abstract Services
This award is for access to trademarked, proprietary database and subscription materials (including SciFinder Scholar) available on a member-subscriber basis only from Chemical Abstracts Services (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society. CAS, both a publisher and a proprietary and licensed database provider, produces the world''s largest and most comprehensive database of chemical information and makes it available on a member-subscriber basis through it?s own sophisticated search-and-analysis software. Moreover, CAS-assigned Registry Numbers are used in reference works, databases, and regulatory compliance documents by numerous organizations around the world to identify substances without the ambiguity of chemical nomenclature. These combined features make CAS an invaluable and indispensable scientific research tool for scientific, research, and university communities. This procurement is economically feasible and procurable from only one source. This award is for open order purchases for the period through June 30, 2006.
