Budget Issues
By now, faculty should have received two letters regarding escalating journal prices and the resulting impact on collections budgets. The letter from Chancellor Berdahl and the Academic Senate Committee on Libraries can be found at The letter from the Chair of the UC Academic Council and the UC University Librarians can be found in the "In the Spotlight" section at

If you have questions or comments about the issues raised in these letters, please feel free to contact me at 2-4345 or You can also find more information at these
two websites:

IUPAC-NIST Solubility Data on the Internet
A database containing solubilities originally published in the International Union for Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC)-National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Solubility Data Series is now available online at This database is derived from eleven volumes of the series and is concerned primarily with liquid-liquid systems though a limited number of multi-component (organic-water-salt) systems are also included.

New ACS Journal
ACS has launched a new journal, Molecular Pharmaceutics, which focuses on molecular mechanistic approaches to the development of bio-available drugs and delivery systems. The first articles have been published and can be viewed at The editor is Gordon L. Amidon from the University of Michigan. UCB will have online access to this journal.
