SciPlanner: Latest Addition to the CAS Suite of Programs
by Robert E. Buntrock
During more than a century of existence, Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) has become the premier source of chemical information. And, since chemistry is the "Central Science," this trove of information finds uses in fields other than chemistry. At least portions have been available in digital form for more than 40 years, and for 30 years, CAS has vended its flagship database, Chemical Abstracts (CA), though the STN network. A wealth of databases has been added to the systems, and the resulting suite allows for one-stop shopping over a wide range of subjects. The CAS Registry system has grown to more than 59 million substances since the mid-1960s and has become an ubiquitous identifier of chemicals worldwide. The latest program from CAS, SciPlanner is aimed at chemical synthesists. SciPlanner, which was unveiled in April 2011, is incorporated into the SF program as a clickable option.

Book Recommendation Services
by Paula J. Hane
My family and friends have long been valued sources of recommendations for that next good read. We eagerly trade paperbacks, and we don't get bent out of shape if our preferences don't always match someone's recommendations. Amazon's recommendations have proven helpful to me over the years (Customers who bought this also …), and sometimes it highlights items I might not have thought of checking. But with the increased interest in ebooks and the phenomenal sales of e-readers, it's worth knowing about some other very helpful sources for book recommendations. There's a growing number of them popping up, and I was quite surprised to find so many when I started digging. Each has its own special strengths, so you might want to check out several.

INTERNET LIBRARIAN INTERNATIONAL

THE LIBRARY INNOVATION CONFERENCE

 October 17 & 18, London

ILI's Programme Director, Val Skelton, celebrates librarian superpowers. 
Librarians are leaders in tech, organizational influencers, expert marketers (often working with a zero budget), change managers, skilled data crunchers and expert internet searchers--and so much more. ILI's conference programme celebrates the incredible range of roles, skills, and initiatives librarians are carrying out every day. Over two days this October, six conference tracks highlight the importance of the internet librarian's role.

THE NEW LIBRARY, THE NEW LIBRARIAN – exploring some of the strategies, structures, teams, skills, services and collaborations librarians are using to ensure they stay at the cutting edge.

USERS, UX, AND USAGE – understanding how libraries are working with users to redesign services, spaces, and to understand usage.

CONTENT CREATIVITY – investigating how libraries are creating, curating, and marketing digital collections, how librarians are publishers in their own right, and how they are driving collaborative content creation.

FIGHT THE FAKE, FIND THE FACTS – celebrating two of the librarian's super powers--advanced search techniques and nurturing information integrity--in a post-truth/multi-truth era.

MARKETING THE LIBRARY – sharing stories of librarians who are influencing use and expanding audiences for their services and collections from the DJ librarian to the digital storyteller.

NEW SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS – exploring why the scholarly communications landscape is changing, and what this means for libraries and information professionals.

In addition to a series of one-hour workshops - ILI Extra - covering a wide range of specialised skills and topics, from tech topics to personal development, ILI also hosts two one-day pre-conference workshops:

Websearch Academy 2017 explores the intricacies of research on the web. Our global expert speakers look at advanced search, evaluation of search engines, apps relevant to serious research, social media search, and analysis of search results.

Marketing Your Library Service: Principles and Actions--In libraries we spend so much time curating our content and services that sometimes we don’t put enough focus on telling people about what we do. We do so much, but how do we ensure people hear about what we offer and understand what we do?
