AbstractThe Canadian Scientific Numeric Database Service (CAN/SND) is a focal point for Canadian activity in numeric database production, dissemination, and exploitation. Production efforts are concentrated on CRYSTMET, the NRC Metals Crystallographic Database, which contains structural, chemical, and physical data on over 40 000 metallic phases. Dissemination is principally via an international online network, featuring thecomplete set of crystallographic databases supported by an online document ordering service. A secondary method of distribution is via magnetic media. Enlightened exploitation of the vast reservoir of information contained in these databases is encouraged through research into novel ways of classifying, interpreting, and viewing data, especially those pertinent to materials science. CAN/SND is a component of the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information of the National Research Council of Canada.
