MDL Information Systems GmbH, an Elsevier company, will provide 350,000 students and faculty at all campuses of the University of California with access to premier chemical information databases. Under the agreement (initiated by librarians at UCLA and assisted by the California Digital Library), researchers at all campuses including the planned Merced campus will be able to search and retrieve chemical information online from the CrossFire Beilstein and CrossFire Gmelin databases. CrossFire Beilstein is the world's largest collection of organic reactions and chemical facts. CrossFire Gmelin is the world's largest compilation of inorganic and organometallic compounds and related physical properties. Both structure-searchable electronic databases are widely used throughout the corporate research world. The combined databases offer academia a comprehensive research solution, with facts and details covering organic, inorganic, and organometallic chemistry.
