About XCITR Project
What is XCITR?
One of the critical issues in chemical information involves the availability and distribution of instructional material. The intensive needs of users of electronic chemical information have made it very difficult for instructors to deal with the large variety of available data sources containing increasingly vast amounts of data and many different searching tools and user interfaces. Available resources for teaching materials are also widely scattered.
The need for an international repository of chemical information educational material was the driving force for developing XCITR (Explore Chemical Information Teaching Resources). XCITR is not only for librarians and instructors in chemical information, but also for chemistry professors, instructors in other disciplines related to chemistry, information specialists, students, high school teachers, and even technical writers. XCITR is a hub in which instructors at all levels, from K-12 to college, will be able to deposit and access important and useful teaching materials.
Teaching materials in XCITR can be used for free and, if the author permits, may be modified. To help insure the quality of the collection, an editorial board will review all depositions before they are made available in XCITR. We invite you to register and contribute materials that you have produced for sharing with others.
XCITR is a collaborative project between the Computer-Information-Chemistry (CIC) Division of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) and the Division of Chemical Information (CINF) of the American Chemical Society (ACS). XCITR is hosted by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).
