The internet has spawned access to unprecedented levels of information. For chemists, the increasing number of resources they can utilize to access chemistry-related information provides them a valuable path to discovery of information, which was previously limited to commercial and, therefore, constrained resources. The diversity of information continues to expand dramatically and, coupled with an increasing awareness for quality, curation and improved tools for focused searches, chemists can now find valuable information within a few seconds using a few keystrokes. Shifting to publicly-available resources offers great promise to the benefits of science and society yet brings with it increasing concern from commercial entities. This article discusses the benefits and disruptions associated with an increase in publicly available scientific resources.
