Cambridge and ICSD-WWW within STFC domain
You have been sent this message because you are on the list of CDS/DL
users we believe have access to the STFC network domain (either as an
STFC member of staff or user of research facilities).
The Cambridge Structural Database System
All CDS/DL users within the STFC network domain (Daresbury,
Rutherford and the Diamond Light Source) can logon onto the CDS
server (cds.dl.ac.uk) to run database search software.
We have recently installed the latest update to the Cambridge
Structural Database System. This update includes significant
improvements for both Mercury and Mogul. For details check the news
page links given below:
The ICSD-WWW Interface
Access to the ICSD-WWW interface is currently available from the
CDS/DL webpages but is also only available to CDS/DL users within
the STFC networks domain.
The ICSD database is also available to CDS/DL users via CrystalWorks
(without network restrictions). CrystalWorks and ICSD Internet are
also available via the RSC NCDS website.
Unfortunately the STFC site licence for ICSD-WWW is due to expire at
the end of this month. At that point we will probably have to
withdraw ICSD-WWW access - access to CrystalWorks and the ICSD
Internet interface will continue.
Most facilities provided within ICSD-WWW are now available via the
other interfaces. In particular we have added ICSD-WWW powder
diffraction simulationa functionality functionality to CrystalWorks.
We hope to add further features such as thermal ellipsoid and
polyhedral display in the near future.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if withdrawal of ICSD-WWW will
cause you paricular problems. Please tell us if there are specific
additional features we could usefully add to CrystalWorks.
