Smithers Rapra are pleased to announce that the Polymer Library has been selected as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2012
Polymer Library has been selected as an Outstanding Academic Title by Choice Magazine. Each year, Choice subject editors select the most exceptional print and electronic works reviewed throughout the year in its list of Outstanding Academic Titles.
Choice said: 'Polymer Library is somewhat distinctive among primarily science and technology databases because it features unusually deep coverage not only of the scientific and technical aspects of polymers, including additives, properties, testing, synthesis, processing, cultivation, applications, and toxicity along with the associated machinery and equipment, but also equally thorough coverage of the legal, legislative, regulatory, and business aspects of these materials. Because it indexes patents relating to polymers, has such an excellent thesaurus, and provides the International Patent Classification as well as the patent number, it is very useful in providing a supplemental route for finding relevant patent classifications.
'Given the commercial, medical, and scientific importance of these polymers, this is a crucial resource for libraries supporting programs in engineering, materials science, nanotechnology, chemistry, and more... in summary: highly recommended [for] students of all levels, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners.'
