The use of CDS/ISIS software in Africa

I Abboy, R Hoskins

Abstract




CDS/ISIS is free-of-charge software that has been developed by UNESCO and is distributed through a network of country distributors and more recently through the World Wide Web. CDS/ISIS is ideally suited for the manipulation of bibliographic data. Literature sources reveal that the use of CDS/ISIS is widespread in Africa. This study surveyed the use of CDS/ISIS by library institutions and organisations as well as the functional use of the software. The advantages and disadvantages of using CDS/ISIS are also discussed.
