Responder-A: "Electronic user-group for Unesco's CDS/ISIS text retrieval
Asunto: World Meeting CDS/ISIS-W2 - Scholarships

AcrossWorld would like to help find funds to support 'exceptional'
CDS/ISIS users from across the world to participate in the September
conference. Our goal would be to find travel grant and support for
30-50 stellar users of CDS/ISIS to participate in the September
conference and present their work.

We work with a number of foundations in North America who could be
interested but are largely ignorant of the rich knowledge in CDS/ISIS
databases and expertise of the members of the community. This will have
to be on a case-by-case basis. For example foundations interested in
women's issues could be persuaded to give a travel grant to selected
members of CDS/ISIS communities working on women's issue or could serve
as a resource for training for their projects; or foundations
supporting effort to create open content or open software for education
as in case of Sofia project (see or the Sakai
project (see You may also want to look at
the open resources for education community that is growing, mostly in
the United States, but has a deep interest in international
cooperation. See for some of the
presentations from their last meeting. If they learn about good work of
the CDS/ISIS community and find it relevant to their efforts, they
could be your best champions.

For this I need the help and guidance of the worldwide CDS/ISIS
community. Our thoughts are:

1. Organize a series of 2 to 3 global dialogs on CDS/ISIS using the
videoconference facility of GDLN (Global Development Learning Network)
for details of the network see between March and July. To
these CDS/ISIS global dialogs we will bring organizations who would be
interested in supporting CDS/ISIS users and would like to learn first
hand about their work. To give you an example of similar effort please
see our somewhat similar efforts in case of Open Course Conversations
( and Open
Content Collaboration (

2. Further post description of 'exceptional' CDS/ISIS users on our
website and actively solicit direct support to them from the community
of institutions that we work with who could be interested in supporting
the work CDS/ISIS users are doing but are ignorant of both CDS/ISIS and
its users worldwide. I strongly believe that the knowledge contained in
CDS/ISIS databases is of interest to a large number of funders
specially they learn of the grassroot capability of CDS/ISIS users to
capture and describe that knowledge in databases which can be

In both cases, we could agree two or three people from the CDS/ISIS
community who could be on the panel of 5 people to select the CDS/ISIS
users to present their work. The other two could be eminent librarians
and thought leaders here who may not know CDS/ISIS as well.

We would like to know what CDS/ISIS community thinks of the idea and
would welcome comments/criticism.

I am already asking for funding to CONICIT here and maybe to the Ministry of
Science and Technology.
