The author presents the experience which took place in the Tate Gallery Library and Archive with the CDS-ISIS system. The works of art of the United Kingdom National Museum are registered in a Clipper database, however those in charge of the Library and the Museum decided to use the CDS-ISIS system temporarily. The author mentions that although CDS-ISIS works well in libraries, its application in an archive is more complex due to the fact that these use archival levels and that the majority of archives do not register their items as an unique record. However the conclusions arrived at by the author are quite satisfactory concerning the use of the CDS-ISIS system in archives.
