Information Competencies for Chemistry Undergraduates: the elements of information literacy, second edition

[Second Edition, 2011] This document identifies the skills and knowledge that chemistry undergraduates should have by the completion of a bachelors degree in chemistry and lists specific resources we recommend. The document is divided into 4 sections: 1) Big Picture: the Library and Scientific and Chemical Literature; 2) Properties, Spectra, Safety Information; 3) Chemical Literature; and 4) Scientific Communication. Students who achieve proficiency in these areas will have a firm understanding of how to navigate the scientific and chemical literature, and will be well-prepared for graduate work and/or employment as a chemist. This document was developed by the Special Libraries Association (SLA), Chemistry Division, Ad Hoc Committee on Information Literacy.
