The Royal Society of Chemistry’s RSC Publishing division recently ran an annual photograph competition with the theme ‘Science in the Library’. The competition prize was that the winning photograph would be placed on the front cover of the 2012 RSC Publishing Catalogue and was voted for by over 115 RSC staff and the RSC Library Advisory Board.
Congratulations to the winner
