The Cambridge data was received on 17/08/11 and initially made
available via ConQuest, Mercury and QUEST.

There have also been some changes to the ConQuest Author/Dispay page.
The "IUCr" and "CrossRef" buttons have been removed for the CDS
implementation. The "LitLink" button has been retained and continues
to provide the mechanism for connecting to the electronic primary
literature.

Please note that you can also use the CrystalWorks web browser
interface to access your selected structures. In addition to accessing
the electronic literature you then have the full range of CrystalWorks
features available. These include Jmol display and coordinate output
in a wide range of formats. There are also links to various Data
Aggregators such as ChemSpider.
