David Brown (McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada), who
provides it with an electronic newsletter. A
corresponding hompage was maintained by CRYSTAL
IMPACT since 1999. Now the ICSD User's Group has its
own World-Wide-Web Domain: www.icsd-usergroup.net
(sponsored by CRYSTAL IMPACT) as a new service point for
users of the Inorganic Crystal Structure Database.
Here you will find the ICSD User's Group Newsletter,
latest news from the database producer, and links to
relevant events and useful software. Additional
