As part of our ongoing communication improvement efforts, we are pleased to announce that we have migrated the online version of the Chemical Information Bulletin, the e-CIB, to a Drupal platform, which will greatly streamline the editing process. The site has been formatted to look similar to the current CINF website. This new platform should give our volunteer e-CIB editors the ability to directly upload and update the e-CIB without depending solely on the webmaster. We will now consider applying a similar approach to other areas of the website.
The work of installing Drupal and transferring over all eCIB issues from Volume 62, no.1 onward was done thanks to a $5,000 ACS innovation grant given to CINF in order to improve the CINF communications infrastructure. The work was overseen by webmaster Danielle Dennie and executed by David Pickup, a librarian working at Concordia University in Montreal. The next issue of eCIB will be published using the new Drupal-based system.
