Chemical Industry Documents Archive Goes Live

Welcome to the new Chemical Industry Documents Archive! We are pleased to add this subject area to our stable of archives at Industry Documents Library (IDL). Today is our "soft launch," with nearly 2,000 documents and more to come in May and beyond.

Our first collection of documents is the Benzene Collection. It currently consists of about 2,000 documents produced during litigation in Bishop v. Shell Oil et al., a civil case about benzene exposure in the workplace. You can find more details about it on Chemical Industry Documents Archive’s Benzene Collection page.

If you’re new to Industry Documents Library and want a quick orientation to navigating the site, click the “Take a Tour” button at the top.

Also, try searching IDL’s Truth Tobacco Industry Documents Archive for documents about chemicals. A search of "benzene" returns 87,539 results!

Finally, don’t forget to head over to Chemical Industry Documents Archive’s Recommended Links, where you’ll find a handful of topically-related sites and projects, including the new Toxic Docs website from Columbia University and the City University of New York.

Article Spotlight: The China National Tobacco Corporation - From domestic to global dragon?

The China National Tobacco Corporation (CNTC) is the largest tobacco company in the world. It produces one-third of the world’s cigarettes and for the past 60 years, has been focused on supplying its huge domestic market. As the market in China has become increasingly saturated and competition from foreign tobacco companies becomes a reality, CNTC has begun to look at expansion abroad. This paper assesses the extent to which CNTC's strategy has been successful to date, the likely prospect that China will join the ranks of existing TTCs, and the implications for tobacco control worldwide.
