A student who intends to become a practicing chemist, or who will use chemistry in allied fields of science and medicine, should know how to use the chemical literature effectively and efficiently. With the continued information explosion, much time can be wasted and important information missed unless an efficient information research strategy is developed.
This will be accomplished in the following manner:
1. Using a Research Strategy to avoid missing terms,
2. Practice using the Research Strategy with the main chemical information resources,
3. Presenting what you have learned about a compound that you have researched.
