Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Online Public Compound Databases - Chemical Structure Based Resources for Educators

Workshop Title: Online Public Compound Databases - Chemical Structure Based Resources for Educators
Descrption: The internet hosts a wealth of chemistry related information and the number of "public compound databases" has grown dramatically. Such resources can be valuable for educators interested in sourcing data and information related to chemical substances. This session will provide an overview of the internet sites now available including freely available spectroscopic data (served up as a game: www.spectralgame.com), access to chemical synthesis procedures and open access and peer-reviewed publications. Internet-based resources require a “user beware” attitude that will be discussed in the session with examples taken from quality issues on platforms including Wikipedia. This workshop will introduce RSC ChemSpider, a free portal for chemists hosting data from over 300 data sources with over 20 million chemical substances from publishers, vendors, wikis, blogs and Wikipedia. We will discuss “crowdsourced” data validation efforts and hosting data collections from your labs to share with the public. This session will include hands-on training in ChemSpider including searching for data and information, data deposition and curation. This workshop is sponsored by the DivCHED Committee on Computers in Chemical Education.
