American Chemical Society updates Web site, adds new search, navigation tools

WASHINGTON, June 1, 2010 — The American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society, has given its Web site, www.acs.org, a bright new look, and added innovative search and navigation tools to make the site even more useful and accessible to the public and members.

ACS has enhanced the appearance of the site with more digital content, such as Flash, and made it easier for users to publish their content and information. New features include the Google navigation tool and more navigation cues, including the left hand menus and the Content Carousel, a media-rich area on the homepage that showcases the Society’s top news and research, as well as promoting top ACS programs and services.

ACS launched a new Web site in October 2007 to provide a global hub for chemistry and other scientific disciplines that involve chemistry and chemical engineering. The site offers ACS members, policy makers, and the public more intuitive access to information from the world’s largest scientific society. This includes cutting-edge science news, subscriber access to ACS’ suite of 38 peer-reviewed scientific journals, job listings and career services, podcasts and other resources.
