WWW-ISIS: Interfacing Micro CDS/ISIS with WWW

The WWW-ISIS software has been implemented by ICIE and CC in cooperation with FAO, Waicent. WWW-ISIS can be used for publishing ISIS databases on WEB, as well as for building sophisticated web based information systems working on ISIS databases. The systems can use such WWW-ISIS functions like information retrieval, data entry (if needed, integrated with e-mail), access control and many other. In addition it can be used for preparing CD-ROMs with the ISIS database.

How to get the system


The system can perform the following functions:


The Institute for Computer and Information Engineering and "CC" Poland have developed a technology allowing one for dynamic interfacing Micro CDS/ISIS databases in WWW. You can see how works search at the sites:
http://www.oefse.at/oefse (site at OeFSE)
http://faolex.fao.org/faolex   (site at FAO Legal database)
http://faolex.fao.org/fishery  (site at FAO, previously used to be a printed index)
http://www4.fao.org/faobib/   (site at FAO, FAO Catalogue)
http://library.iccrom.org/libris  ICCROM Library
http://weblis.unep.org/libcat/ UNEP, Nairobi IUCN, (Bonn)

Other users of WWW-ISIS: IFAD, IDLI, WFP, IRCT, Ministry of Economy in Argentina, and many AGRIS Regional/National Centers building AGRIS database (here you can see cross-database search), as well as some fifty ASFA Partners.
