J-ISIS is software for creating, updating and searching textual databases utilising a web interface. It is Unicode based, an advantage for users requiring extended characters or different alphabets. It has been developed by UNESCO as a multiplatform modular, easy maintainable and extensible FOSS ISIS suite that would provide the same successful concepts and functionalities as the existing ISIS suite (CDS-ISIS, Win-ISIS etc) whilst removing the restrictions. One of the objectives was also to keep the assets and experience of the users.
On 16th May 2013 EIFL FOSS hosted a free webinar on J-ISIS. A very thorough, informative and clear presentation was provided by Egbert De Smet from the Universiteit Antwerpen in Belgium. Egbert introduced us to the ISIS 'family' and how J-ISIS fits into it as one of the products from the UNESCO stable. He took us step by step through the key processes, from download to database creation, database import, and the creation and editing of indexes and worksheets. He also gave us a quick look into the future with the development of Web-JISIS.
