e-CIB migrates to Drupal

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 all e-CIB 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 e-CIB will be published using the new Drupal-based system.
