Webinar: Accessing Information About Chemicals and Chemical Hazards
The recent chemical spill in West Virginia illustrates how vulnerable our communities can be to chemical contamination. In this case, little information existed about the chemical and its effects on health. Chemist Shannon Jordon, MPH, of the Specialized Information Services team at the U.S. National Library of Medicine, will speak about how NLM gathered information and created new chemical records that could be used by public health and environmental officials dealing with the spill. This webinar and conference call will also feature tools that can be used to access information about chemicals including WISER and CHEMM.
