Chemical Information Instructional Materials

XCITR, is an international repository for exploring and sharing chemical information teaching resources. XCITR is intended not only for librarians and instructors in chemical information, but also for chemistry professors, instructors in other disciplines related to chemistry, information specialists, students, high school teachers, and even technical writers. XCITR is a successor to the Clearinghouse for Chemical Information Instructional Materials created by Gary Wiggins at Indiana University in the mid-1980's.

Librarians, instructors, and information providers can deposit and access important and useful teaching materials in XCITR. Educational materials about library services and collections are also welcome. Teaching materials deposited in XCITR can be used for free and, if the author permits, modified according to individual needs. To help insure that items deposited fall within the scope of the collection, an editorial board will briefly review all depositions before they are made publicly available in XCITR.

XCITR is a collaborative project between the Computer-Information-Chemistry (CIC) Division of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) and the Division of Chemical Information (CINF) of the American Chemical Society (ACS). XCITR is hosted by FIZ Chemie Berlin, Germany.
