                Herbarium Information Systems Committee (HISCOM)

     The above committee was formed in 1995 and consists of representatives
     of Australian Herbaria and some observers. HISCOM was formed as a
     working group to the Council of Heads of Australian Herbaria (CHAH).
     The aim of the group is to develop practical solutions to problems
     common to herbaria. Some of the issues being dealt with include:

                * Data interchange for specimen data
                * Developing an interchange standard (HISPID)
                * DELTA developments including a register of Aust. datasets
                * APNI (Australian Plant Name Index)

     HISCOM now has a Web site (URL http://www.rbgsyd.gov.au/HISCOM).
     HISPID can be accessed through the HISCOM page.

     To encourage further discussion of HISPID, we now have a listserver.
