AIMS: Academic Information Management Systems

Web Science, Decentralised Information Systems

AIMS (Academic Information Management System) is designed to store and make available on the Web documents that are to be printed or published without the author having to convert the document to HTML. The system is designed to provide a service to a University Department or Faculty for storing and displaying on the Web finished versions of published material. The design of the system is based upon causing the minimum of impact to existing working practices.

Distinguishing features include:

  • the system automatically makes the content of all documents available on the Web
  • version control and document hierarchy
  • full text search facilities
  • will use the Distributed Link Service and Webcosm to dynamically cross reference documents
  • AIMS is a Lotus Domino application

The project is funded by the JISC Technologies Application Programme (JTAP) and has been running since January 1997.
