Chemical Literature Exercises and Resources (CLEAR).
Hostettler, John D.; And Others
These materials were developed to make the structure and use of the chemical literature clear to chemistry students and to help them become independent and intelligent users of the library. The design of Chemical Literature Exercises and Resources (CLEAR) includes a users' note and five main parts: introduction to chemical literature, chemical bibliography, and three exercises. The users' note outlines the purposes, design, subject matter, and use of CLEAR. The introduction to chemical literature provides a rationale for library research, some remarks on literature guides, and general information on both the structure and use of chemical literature. The bibliography gives specific references to the tertiary chemical literature grouped by type (encyclopedias, texts, treatises, and dictionaries among others). In Exercise 1 students pick 20 specific chemical questions to answer using tertiary sources. In Exercise 2 students build a bibliography of a chemical topic starting with tertiary sources and progressing to secondary materials (review journals, annual reviews, and monographs). Exercise 3 gives students practice in using "Chemical Abstracts" and the primary literature sources, journal articles, personal journals/notebooks, news releases, conference abstracts/proceedings, reports, dissertations, theses, and patents.
