Research Tool from CAS

COLUMBUS, Ohio, January 14, 2000 - Chemical Abstracts Service
(CAS) announced today that it has reached an agreement with CAUL
Electronic Information Resources Committee (CEIRC) to make
SciFinder Scholar available to universities in Australia and New

The CEIRC consortium is part of the Council of Australian
University Librarians (CAUL) and comprises 46 member universities
in Australia and New Zealand. Through the multi-year agreement,
SciFinder Scholar continues to expand its presence worldwide.

"We are delighted to offer SciFinder Scholar to our members,"
said Diane Costello, CAUL Executive Officer. "We expect gaining
easier, more user-friendly access to CAS databases will be a
welcome enhancement to chemical education and research. We would
like to thank CAS and also Dr. Damon Ridley of the University of
Sydney for helping us arrange this agreement."

Many CEIRC universities have already made the decision to install
SciFinder Scholar. These include such well respected
institutions as the University of Adelaide, University of
Auckland, Australian National University, the University of
Canterbury, Curtin University of Technology, Deakin University,
Griffith University, LaTrobe University, Macquarie University,
Massey University, University of Melbourne, Murdoch University,
University of New South Wales, University of Newcastle,
University of Otago, University of Queensland, University of
Sydney, Victoria University of Wellington, University of Waikato,
University of Western Australia, and University of Wollongong.

"CAS greatly appreciates the leadership of CEIRC in providing the
best research tools for chemistry," said CAS Marketing Director,
Suzan Brown. "Students and faculty in Australia and New Zealand
will join thousands of users on campuses around the world who
have found SciFinder Scholar to be an indispensable tool."

SciFinder Scholar is a desktop research tool that provides
campus-wide access to CAS databases with an ease of use never
before seen in universities. Featuring a graphical,
point-and-click interface SciFinder Scholar gives chemistry
faculty and students the power to explore CAS' world-leading
collection of substance information, published research from
8,000 journals and patents from 1967 to the present.

CEIRC is an advisory committee of CAUL, and its membership
includes representatives of the CSIRO and CONZUL (the Council of
New Zealand University Librarians). Its core business is
consortium purchasing of electronic information resources and
services, and its focus is on the principles and practices
involved in dealing with publishers and suppliers and with
members of the group. Day-to-day coordination of subscriptions
and information about relevant products is handled by the CAUL
Office. The CAUL web site is at

CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, is the world's
leader in providing scientists online and web access to
chemistry-related research data. CAS produces the world's
largest and most comprehensive databases of chemical information
and combines them with sophisticated search and analysis software
that is vital to new product and patent research, as well as
academic research in the world's leading universities. The CAS
databases include more than 19 million abstracts of
chemistry-related literature and patents and more than 22 million
substance records. CAS publishes the print version of Chemical
Abstracts (CA), related publications and CD-ROM services;
operates the CAS Chemical Registry; produces a family of online
databases; and offers the SciFinder desktop research tool. CAS
operates STN International, a network of scientific and technical
databases, in association with FIZ Karlsruhe in Germany and the
Japan Science and Technology Corporation. The CAS web site is at
