American Chemical Society upgrades its professional network site

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2010 — The American Chemical Society (ACS) Network, the premier professional network for ACS members and the global chemistry community, has just become better and even easier to use.

The ACS Network was designed for scientists by scientists. With thousands of members worldwide, it is the destination of choice for chemists and scientists to connect, communicate and collaborate online. Members can manage their careers, learn, and grow in their profession through the network.

To further improve the network, ACS has added tools that will allow users to:

  • Send and receive in-system private messages
  • Collaborate and share documents in private or open groups
  • Participate on-the-go with e-mail digests and alerts
  • Bookmark and share favorite links
  • Tag and categorize content more effectively
  • Stay engaged on the latest discussions in various communities of interests

The ACS Network attracts leading chemists and science practitioners in the fields of chemistry, bio-chemistry, environmental chemistry, materials science and other areas. The network is designed to allow users to interact freely within a trusted community of scientists, find people with shared interests, and meet others. It’s a place to gather information, insights and opinions, and explore opportunities.

Members can tap into these resources by simply logging on and creating a profile at www.acs.org/network.
