OM Information Service (OMIS) provides Web access to selected extracts from the writings and sayings of spiritual leaders, saints, seers, mystics, and scholars, and also to biographical sketches and list of works of some of these sources. Web access has been made interesting through display of related images and rendering of background music. The user and search interfaces have been designed for the novice user. OMIS is ported from a database originally available on CDS/ISIS. The article discusses the content and structure of the CDS/ISIS database, requirements for the Web and CD-ROM versions, system design and implementation for the two media. For the CD-ROM, database access is currently provided using Windows version of CDS/ISIS operating as a helper application within the Netscape browser.
