Abstract:The iSchools Searchable Online Database is a recently built centralized and searchable database containing collective information on the people as well as the teaching and research activities that are carried out at the various iSchool institutions around the world. The project was initiated principally with a view to facilitating information search and discovery about the iSchools, enhancing the visibility of the iSchools both individually and as a body, and promoting research collaborations among them. This paper presents an overview of the searchable online database, showcasing its features and functionalities, but more particularly discussing the issues and challenges which arose or were encountered in the process of building the service. Other important questions concerning the long-term maintenance and sustainability of the database are also discussed.
