Message to CDS Reps about iPetition


Dear CDS User Representative

Could you please remind members of your department of the importance
of signing the the recent iPetition in support of a national chemical
database service.

Many people have signed so far and contributed comments. These will
provide useful input into the Statement Of Need which will be
submitted to the EPSRC in response to their review of 'Mid-Range
Facilities'. Further such comments are, of course, most welcome.

We believe, however, that many people rely on use of the CDS for
aspects of the research. They may, however, feel uneasy about
submitting comments. Please encourage them to sign the petition even
without comments. This will also help us make the case for continued
EPSRC funding.
