The purpose of the Chemical Safety Library (CSL) is to collect community-contributed insights regarding reactions that have gone awry in the lab with the aim of making this information freely and widely available to improve safety for all. The CSL contains hazardous reaction and reagent information from the literature, from internal files, and from personal experience.
During #CSLDatathon, the Pistoia Alliance will tabulate all the reactions entered and approved by their curation team, and top contributors will win a $100 gift card and an acknowledgement in their blog.
We encourage readers of this listserv to:
· Scour the literature to find and input reaction safety information into the CSL
· Alert your students/faculty/clients to this effort and encourage them to participate
· Share this news with your EH&S staff
Support and training materials:
· Register for a Kickoff seminar scheduled for 18 October 2017 at 11am EST. This seminar will be recorded if you are unable to attend the session.
· Download a handy flier with all the details about the CSLDatathon (PDF)
· Watch short training video on how to add a reaction to the Chemical Safety Library
· Watch short training video on how to add a new reagent to the Chemical Safety Library
· Download user training manual (PDF) that has step-by-step instructions plus screenshots.
Thank you very much in advance for your support!
