Send us your suggestions for improving the IRIS Database

We are currently working on redesigning both the IRIS database and the IRIS database interface in order to serve you better. For those of you who really know and like the current search screen, we want to assure you that it will still be available when the new interface is put into place.

Below please find our current "Wish List" for features we would like to see implemented with the redesign. Now is the time to let us know what you'd like to see. Please look over the list and let us know via comments to this blog or emails (rso@uiuc.edu) if you'd like to add to the list.


• Amount of grant field (searchable)
• Save option for Search statement and results
• Export to Spreadsheet option for displaying records
• Thesaurus updates (adding terms and ability to use more terms)
• Promotional page with ideas how to promote IRIS at your Institution
• More simplistic search option
