There is an increasing availability of free and open access resources for scientists to use on the internet. Coupled with the increasing availability of Open Source software tools we are in the middle of a revolution in data availability and tools to manipulate these data. ChemSpider is a free access website for chemists built with the intention of providing a structure centric community for chemists. As an aggregator of chemistry related information from many sources, at present over 21.5 million unique chemical entities from over 200 separate data sources, ChemSpider has taken on the task of both robotically and manually curating publicly available data sources. This presentation will provide an overview of the ChemSpider platform and how it is fast becoming the centralized hub for resourcing information about chemical entities.
