INFOCOM - Data Resources Log In

"Minimizing the effort of data collection and data entry"
INFOCOM has been developed as a tool for facilitating the shared use of community information resources. Any user of INFOCOM is able to share locally maintained information with other INFOCOM users. Several organisations have indicated a preparedness to share their data resources.

INFOCOM allows users to extend information obtained from other sources for their own local purposes, either by the addition of greater detail or local notes. Such extensions can be protected so that data is not lost when the next update from the original source is loaded.

Organisations providing a shared data resource may charge a subscription fee to cover the costs of maintaining the resource. Any organisation providing data also reserves the right to specify limitations on the use which can be made of such data.

Data obtained from other sources is loaded into the local INFOCOM database using the "import" facility.

The major sources of shared data for INFOCOM users are:
    Community Referral Directory Database
    Victorian Community Information Centres
    Other INFOCOM Data Sources
    Non-INFOCOM Data Sources

Any other INFOCOM users who are interested in sharing their data, and would like this fact more widely known, should contact Datascape. We are happy to promote the availability of additional information resources on this web site.

Community Referral Directory Database
The Community Referral Support Service maintains a comprehensive INFOCOM database which provides the basis for the electronic versions of the Community Referral Directory. This database is also available to INFOCOM users on an annual subscription basis. For further information contact the Community Referral Support Service.

Other INFOCOM Data Sources
INFOCOM has been installed in over 100 organisations in Victoria and other states. Any INFOCOM user maintaining their own local data is potentially a source of information for other INFOCOM users.

For more information about INFOCOM users that may be relevant to your organisation contact Community Referral Support Service.

Non-INFOCOM Data Sources
Any relevant data available in computer form (spreadsheets, documents, other databases) has the potential to be "imported" into an INFOCOM database, subject to the approval of the owner of the other data resource. Datascape will develop conversion utilities for any authorised data source (at minimum cost).

For more information contact Community Referral Support Service.
