The recent American Chemical Society (ACS) meeting in San Francisco, California, saw Caltech’s own Dana Roth honored by both the RSC (Royal Society of Chemistry) and the ACS.
Dana was awarded the title of Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) at a dinner with representatives from the RSC, Caltech, and Dana’s co-author on Chemical Information for Chemists (published by the RSC), Judith Currano:
Chemical Information for Chemists recently received a four-star “essential” review from CHOICE magazine, a library resource review publication from the American Library Association.
On Wednesday, August 13, a symposium entitled “It Takes Two To Tango: Chemistry Librarians Partnering with Publishers and Researchers To Advance the Chemical Sciences” was held to honor Dana’s contributions to the field of chemical information. It was organized by Judith Currano, Head of the Chemistry Library at the University of Pennsylvania, and Ted Baldwin, Director of the Science and Engineering Library at University of Cincinnati.
A summary of the symposium can be found in the Winter 2014 edition of the Chemical Information Bulletin, and links to slides from the presentation can be found therein.
Congratulations Dana on these well-deserved honors, and thank you for your past and continuing service to the field of chemical librarianship!
