SIRIS Mission

"The Smithsonian Institution Research Information System (SIRIS) is an interactive, integrated system applying established national standards to manage, describe, and provide access to research resources held primarily by the Institution's libraries, archives, and research units in support of the Institution's mission. SIRIS supports the Smithsonian research community by providing a gateway to and from other Institution information resources and to external information resources."
