|Title:||Operational Computer-Based Systems At The Chemical Abstracts Service

|Abstract:||The American Chemical Society (ACS) is a non-profit organization
chartered by Congress as a scientific and educational organization.
The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) is a division of the
American Chemical Society.
Like any society the ACS is concerned with helping its members
to get their papers published and to help chemists and chemical engineers
to gain recognition in the scientific and general public communities.
Equally important, however, the ACS wants to have available
information put to use. To this end, it is concerned that all
forms of research, development, and applied technology be fully recorded,
indexed, and retrievable for the full scientific community.
Chemical information is not used only by chemists and chemical engineers.
It is used by many other kinds of scientists. In line then with
the major purpose of getting available information put to use, it is
clear that the ACS operates the Chemical Abstracts Service not only
for the benefit of members of the Society, but for a broader reason.
We want chemical and chemical engineering information put to use in
the full scientific community so that the general public will reap the
benefits which such use will provide.
