Science of Synthesis

                            The Library has purchased a complete e-book set of the Thieme reference series Science of Synthesis, including the base set of 48 volumes and the Reference Library volumes through 2020.  SoS is the successor edition to the venerable Methoden der organischen Chemie (known to older chemists as Houben-Weyl) and was published between 2000 and 2010.  It contains reviews of synthetic methods for various classes of organic compounds authored by experts.  While the library has always held the series in print, we now offer access as standalone e-books via the Library Catalog.  See the guide page on Science of Synthesis for more information.

The Deep Sea - The Challenger Deep, the deepest known point in the ocean. Just how far would YOU go?! Check it out and see what two men, Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh, witnessed in the submarine Trieste on January 23rd, 1960. Slowly descend into the Mariana Trench and find what marine life exist at different depths and then hit bottom at 10914 meters!
