U.S. Department of Defense implements ARPANET (advanced research projects agency network) to demonstrate how communications between computers could promote cooperative research among scientists.
U.S. National Science Foundation incorporates ARPANET into its new INTERNET (interactive network).
The CORE project, to create a prototype of an electronic library of ACS journals, is established cooperatively by ACS, CAS, Bellcore, OCLC, and Cornell University.
First sites appear on the World Wide Web.
CAS begins Internet coverage of chemical science resources that are only available in electronic form.
ACS creates ChemCenter, a web service to access a wide variety of chemical information. Includes full text of 26 ACS journals.
