What do librarians think of RSC Gold?

"Students and researchers at the University of Leeds benefit greatly from having access to the full range of journal, database and magazine online content provided by the RSC Gold collection. The quality information published in these high impact journals is invaluable, not only in supporting our chemistry-focused research, but also in enriching our interdisciplinary activity in the fields of food science, nanotechnology, environmental sciences, and more." 

Dan Pullinger, Faculty Team Librarian, University of Leeds, UK


"Having the RSC Gold package not only allows students and researchers access to the discoveries of today, but also to nearly 170 years of exploration in the chemical and related sciences. With a dedicated set of core chemistry-oriented journals and newer titles devoted to cutting-edge, interdisciplinary areas, the RSC Gold collection will assist in achieving the discoveries of tomorrow." 

Jeremy Garritano , Chemical Information Specialist and Associate Professor of Library Science, Purdue University, USA
