- The SLA Chemistry Division is pleased to co-sponsor an in-person professional development course on Thursday, November 15. This course is usually offered in conjunction with the SLA annual conference, so we are pleased to provide another opportunity to learn these fundamentals. Note: Registration is limited to 30 attendees.
Chemistry for the Non-Chemist Librarian
A hands-on course that introduces learners to the basic principles of the five major divisions of chemistry, chemical terminology and drawing, and other intellectual tools that chemists need to do their work. The course will be composed of four basic sections: an introduction to chemistry as a science, strategies for effective communication with chemists, an explanation of basic chemical concepts and research questions, and an exploration of the ways in which chemists’ research needs dictate their information needs.
Instructor: Judith Currano, University of Pennsylvania.
Joint sponsors: SLA Chemistry Division and the Army Research Laboratory Technical Library.
Date: Thursday 15 Nov 2012, 8 am – 4 pm.
Location: Mallette Hall, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD 21005. (Driving instructions provided upon registration.)
Cost: $250, payable at the event by check to SLA Chemistry Division.
