The American Chemical Society was founded in 1876 and is a not-for-profit
organization. It is the world's largest scientific society and has a membership
of over 151,000 chemists and chemical engineers. The American Chemical Society
was chartered by a 1937 Act of the U.S. Congress. The Society is recognized as a
world leader in fostering scientific education and research, and promoting
public understanding of science.
The Division of Chemical Information (ClNF) of the American Chemical Society is the source for maintaining professional competency in information resources, information technology, and information
policy. No other ACS Division is as relevant to the professional lives of all researchers involved in any aspect of chemical research. As one of approximately 1,400 divisional members and affiliates, you will
