This presentation begins by outlining the changing nature of the exchange of chemical information and the new opportunities that are provided by the new generation of tools and services available on the world wide web. It then goes on to demonstrate the clear need for a new and structured approach to storing, managing and disseminating such information, given the current data deluge and approach to publishing. The Institutional Repository approach is presented as a solution and models, prototypes, policies and financial case studies are presented. The concept of using Blog technology to collaborate and exchange information relating to chemical experiments is discussed and an example of Open Notebook Science presented. Finally the concept of implementing the OAI-ORE protocol to wrap up heterogeneous data types from different sources and analytical experiments to produce an exchangeable complex digital object package that is self describing and may be shared using new social networking approaches (in particular the myExperiment project) is outlined.
