CDS/ISIS: New Developments and Training

27-03-2003 (Paris)
UNESCO's CDS/ISIS team reports on new developments concerning this non-numerical information storage and retrieval software. A Kazakh version of CDS/ISIS has been developed in Kazakhstan together with a series of documents on language localization, now available on the UNESCO Almaty Office web site. In France, workshops on the use of the CDS/ISIS for Windows are presently taking place.
A first workshop on CDS/ISIS for Windows focusing on the creation of databases and the CDS/ISIS formatting language was organized in February 2003 in Paris by the Association des Diplômés de l'Ecole de Bibliothécaires-Documentalistes (ADEBD) with Annie Laurence as trainer.

A second training course, also organized by ADEBD, will be held on 14th-17th April 2003, concentrating on the CDS/ISIS formatting language and advanced searching, sorting and printing features.

CDS/ISIS is an advanced non-numerical information storage and retrieval software developed by UNESCO since 1985 to satisfy the need expressed by many institutions, especially in developing countries, to be able to streamline their information processing activities by using modern (and relatively inexpensive) technologies.

The software was originally based on the Mainframe version of CDS/ISIS, started in the late '60s, thus taking advantage of several years of experience acquired in database management software development. Several partners contributed to its development through the years.
