Implementing a modern API for CDS/ISIS, a classic semistructured NoSQL database (WSL 2010)

Luciano G. S. Ramalho (USP)

CDS/ISIS is a family of semistructured, "NoSQL" database products created by Unesco and used at the SciELO digital library as well as thousands of academic libraries since the 1980s. This paper describes how a database-independent API is being developed to allow the LILACS bibliographic methodology created by BIREME to be implemented over CDS/ISIS and modern semistructured databases such as MongoDB and CouchDB.
