A while ago we made an attempt at creating a list for resources to learn chemistry. And while we have come a long way already, I think we are still far from complete. In the past it served us very well in referring (especially new) users to an extensive list of (text)books and other resources, especially about the main branches inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. However, when it comes to some more niche subjects, like the recently asked question about chemical engineering the list offers nothing. In principle the main directive of closing as a duplicate is violated.
In these cases, and especially keeping in mind that we may want to amend the list, I think we should keep these question open, and later (with sufficient answers) incorporate the results into the list. (We can then still close it as duplicate to direct new users to the main post.)
Additionally, it is a nice way to allow encouraging answers via bounties, which is not possible for the community wiki post, in order to extend the list.
Therefore I propose the following:
If the community wiki post "Resources for learning Chemistry" doesn't cover resources for learning specific chemistry, we allow questions for resource requests about that specific field of chemistry.
When sufficient answers are available the goal is to implement them into the community wiki post and close the daughter post as a duplicate to direct new users to the big list.
Voting on this proposal is closed, i.e. if you cast your vote now it will not be considered any more. If you disagree, or would like to amend this proposal please make a new meta discussion.
