American Chemical Society puts national meeting presentations online

WASHINGTON, Sept. 18, 2009 =97 In an effort to expand access to  
scientific sessions at its national meetings, the American Chemical  
Society (ACS) today made recordings of more than 150 presentations  
from its 238th National Meeting in Washington, D.C., available online  

without charge.

The sessions include some 150 cutting-edge research papers on topics  
ranging from sustainable energy to moving new discoveries out of the  
laboratory and into the marketplace. The recordings consist of the  
scientists=92 oral presentations and PowerPoint slides. Almost 14,000  

scientists and others attended the meeting, held here Aug. 16-20.

=93Our national meetings generate an enormous amount of high quality  
scientific content,=94 said John C. Katz, Director, ACS Member  
Communities. =93While many thousands physically attend these meetings,  

they represent a fraction of those who can benefit from the  
information presented. This is but one way the Society is expanding  
access to its content. We hope this will advance the interests of our  

members, the science they practice, and the public that ultimately  
benefits from our members=92 research.=94

ACS made 38 presentations from its 237th National Meeting available  
online after the meeting concluded in March in Salt Lake City. Plans  
call for online posting of about 300 presentations from ACS=92s 240th  

National Meeting scheduled for March 21-25, 2010 in San Francisco.
