The Toxicology Information Working Party (TIWP) was set up following a joint meeting of the Association of Information Officers in the Pharmaceutical Industry (AIOPI) and the UK Online User Group (UKOLUG), held at Pfizer Central Research, Sandwich, in early 1979, to discuss problems of chemical toxicology searching. A strong feeling emerged from this meeting that some co‐operative action among users to improve information provision in this area was both possible and highly desirable. The TIWP was set up, under the auspices of AIOPI and UKOLUG, to investigate this possibility, and to initiate suitable projects. We review here the activities of TIWP during its first six months of existance.
