Cambridge Scientific Abstracts Selected To Operate CDA Copper Data Center

May 3, 1999


NEW YORK- The Copper Development Association has selected Cambridge Scientific Abstracts of Bethesda, Maryland, to manage the association's Copper Data Center beginning May 15, 1999.

The CDC is an on-line bibliographic database of the world's technical literature on copper and copper alloys and has been maintained by the association since it established it in 1965. The CDC database covers copper technology from smelting and hydro metallurgy through the performance of copper and copper alloys in end-use applications and service environments. It references data on properties, performance and applications of the copper metals and on competitive materials. Over 50,000 documents, mostly articles from the technical literature, have been indexed into the database.

The CDC covers 16 major categories: extractive metallurgy, melting and casting, fabrication, cleaning and finishing, joining, powder metallurgy, physical metallurgy, properties, corrosion and oxidation, composites, copper compounds,superconductivity, electrical insulation, applications, pollution control and energy.Information from around the globe on copper technology and copper in the environment is now at the fingertips of those who produce, use, study and research copper and copper alloys. Scientific, engineering and applications information is included.

CDC is unique in its coverage and scope, and especially in the technical care taken to evaluate and index documents into the system. Access to the CDC is free to the public.


The Copper Development Association is the information, education, market and technical development arm of the copper, brass and bronze industries in the USA.
