     6The '''ISO 15926 Primer''' has been replaced with '''An Introduction to ISO 15926''', a free download from Fiatech. 
    7 In the ''Introduction to ISO 15926'' we compare getting started with ISO 15926 to the evolution of the creation of web pages for the internet. Fifteen years ago, if you wanted to make a web page you would have had to lean how to code Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) by hand. Nowadays, for a few dollars a month you can use the tools of a service provider and drag and drop widgets to make in a few minutes what used to take days and weeks. 
     8This page is out of date and has been deprecated. 
    9 Implementation of ISO 15926 is following a similar path. Some of the parts of the standard require some computer programming, and as short a time as two years ago users would have had to write it themselves. Now, however, there are a number of tools which support the various parts of ISO 15926. 
     10If you reached this page from a link in another web page please inform the webmaster. 
    11 There are a number of approaches to implementing ISO 15926 depending on what you want to achieve and the resources available. In the book we show how the standard can be implemented gradually by a small team in a small organization. In fact, if your organization has ever been involved in moving information directly between to software applications, it probably already employs people with the required skills.

    13 In the book we explain this in more detail, but basically, start the information exchange project in the same way you normally do. Eventually you will come to a part where you determine that "this database term over here" means the same as "that database term over there". The traditional approach is to create what is called a database map to relate the two together. But instead of mapping the two terms directly to each other, map each to the appropriate term in Part 4.  As your team learns more about ISO 15926 they can get more sophisticated. 
    15 A good way to learn more about ISO 15926 is to join FIATECH or the POSC Caesar Association (PCA), join a project or two and attend a few conferences.  There you will meet people who have travelled down this path ahead of you and can help you out.
