ACS on Campus is a Library Relations initiative begun in 2010 to raise the profile of the campus science/chemistry librarian through a series of campus events. Since then, it has become the Society’s cross-divisional campus outreach program bringing resources from ACS Publications, Chemical Abstracts Service, Membership & Scientific Advancement and Education to over 20 campuses domestically and internationally. Students participate in seminars on the basics of peer review, ethics in scholarly communications, career building and development and effective use of ACS Web tools like SciFinder®, the ACS Network and the Web Editions Platform.
