Abstract: Retrieving chemical information from local and global networks was studied. The advances in computers and their interconnections have enabled various services based on client-server approach. The possibilities of specialised information services like the Scientific and Technical Information Network providing databases as Chemical Abstracts On-line and local services were compared to global and general server platforms on World Wide Web. Fast development is obvious and hints are given for successful conduct of searches or browsing primary and secondary literature.
