SCIS Customer Assistance

A brief reminder to schools who phone Curriculum Corporation regarding SCIS enquires/assistance. The contact numbers provided to schools, ring directly through to Curriculum Corporation's Reception staff and not immediately to a Customer Service Officer. In order to provide a more efficient service, schools are asked to provide a brief description (only) of the nature of their call to the Reception staff who will then put them: through to the appropriate person. For example: SCIS-Account, SCIS subscription, Voyager, SCISLINK, ASCISRECON, etc. Your co-operation in this matter will enable the SCIS staff to maintain their high standard of customer service.

Connections Journal Photocopy Request

As a result of reduced staffing levels, the "Connections journal photocopy request" service will be temporarily unavailable. Curriculum Corporation apologises for this inconvenience and hopes to resume the service as soon as possible.

Changes to Voyager Display

At the request of SCIS Online customers, Curriculum Corporation have altered the screens in Voyager so that customers will view the full catalogue record instead of the brief screen that previously displayed first.


The review of DDC21 by the state-based SCIS cataloguing agencies is underway.

This is an involved process requiring agencies to examine and compare sections of DDC 21 with the current SCIS standards on applying options and number building and making recommendations for amendments where required.

SCIS aims to begin cataloguing new records with DDC21 numbers in early May 1997.
