Abstract

Many professional societies and organisations make use of Web portals to allow access to their many facilities, resources, and varied content materials. The International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) is no exception and the IFIP site (www.ifip.org) provides access to a vast amount of information about IFIP itself and its constituent parts. Beinga portal, although the site itself has some useful information, most of the information accessible through the IFIP site is stored at various locations around the world on servers in universities, other societies, and the computer industry. This article examines aspects of the IFIP portal with particular reference to several IFIP Working Group sites.
