International Programme on Chemical Safety's (IPCS's) INCHEM "consolidates a wide variety of information produced by a number of international bodies whose goal is to assist in the sound management of chemicals [and] provides a means of rapid access to information on chemicals commonly used throughout the world, which may also occur as contaminants in the environment and food." From this metasite, users can access documents on chemical safety from a host of organizations worldwide. Examples of information that can be found include exposure limits by country, pesticide data sheets, health and safety guides, and physical-chemical data. Most of the subindices are listed alphabetically by chemical name. This is an excellent resource for science librarians, toxicology researchers, or anyone working in the chemical industry.
