Chemistry | Biology | Pharmacy Information Center

Main content

The Chemistry | Biology | Pharmacy Information Center, the former “Chemistry Library", is a joint facility of both the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences (D-CHAB) and the Department of Biology (D-BIOL). It supports Bachelor and Master students, PhD students and Post-Docs, Senior Scientists and Professors from those two departments as well as from the Department of Materials regarding all questions on scientific information as well as information and knowledge management.

Education & Training

The Chemistry | Biology | Pharmacy Information Center acts as a scientific information skill center within a diverse teaching and research environment. The curriculum the Information Center has developed ensures that students acquire the necessary skills in information management and retrieval as part of their education in chemistry, life sciences and materials science. This includes the capacity to critically judge the relevancy of scientific information as well as the development of knowledge management expertise. In addition, information consultants who are chemists, biologists or pharmacists and information scientists support researchers and lecturers and also scout and evaluate new information solutions.

A Place to Study and Learn

Located in the HCI building, the Information Center is also a place to learn and study, and a library with a team of dedicated library professionals providing tailored subject-specific services.

A Hub to Scientific Databases and Tools

Two dynamic modules on the Info Center’s website, “Databases” and “Tools”, allow to intuitively find the right scientific information solution.
