Service Termination Notice 1

Closure of Daresbury Chemical Database Service

Dear Colleague

As you will know the EPSRC is not providing funding to run the 
Daresbury Chemical Database Service after December 2012 and so,
with regret, the service is now scheduled to be terminated.

The RSC has not released any information to us about the nature 
of the new service even though it starts in only 3 weeks time.

Please be aware that the new service is likely to be significantly 
different from the present Service and some databases currently 
available from Daresbury will no longer be available.

The full Daresbury CDS service will be running unattended over the
Christmas period until 2nd Jan when user access to the databases 
will be disabled.

In the interim we will provide further information as and when we
receive it. Please keep an eye on the CDS homepage, follow us on
Twitter (@cds_daresbury) or access the link to the Newsfile:

We will also send out further broadcast messages when there are 
any significant news updates.
