You are cordially invited to drop-in at the Lewis Science Library’s electronic classroom and learn about the content and features of BioRad’s spectra database called “KnowItAll U” (where U=University) this Thursday, Oct. 16, between 10 am and 2 pm. The e-classroom is on the 2nd floor, Room 225. Dr. Greg Banik of Bio-Rad Informatics will be here to demonstrate this product.
In 2008 the Library subscribed to KnowItAll U—only then offered via subscription to academic institutions—which provides Web access to over 1.3 million spectra (including those from Sadtler) and includes structures and chemical property information. The database includes IR, UV/Vis, NMR, Raman and mass spectra. A Windows version is available as well and can be used for database creation and more sophisticated searching. The web version is available at http://www.knowitallanyware.com/site.html. Scroll down on the webpage, click “Yes, I agree”, and try out the Advanced Search option.
There will be refreshments and door prizes.
We would appreciate it if you would register at http://scilib.princeton.edu/instruction/workshops.php so we can gauge the number of attendees in advance, but this is optional. Please feel free to come and stay as short or as long a time as you wish.
I hope you will be able to join us on Thursday.
