NISS was a service designed to make available to the academic community quality information selected to be authoritative, current and comprehensive through service provision which is economic and effective. NISS was set up with Computer Board funding in November 1987 as a joint project based at Southampton and Bath Universities. After a short period it was amalgamated with CHEST and received a joint funding stream from the Computer Board and subsequently JISC. The funding stream was later separated from that of CHEST by JISC. NISS's main services to the education community that are covered by JISC funding are the NISS Campus and StudentZone websites. NISS also developed the Athens Access Management system. This was developed initially to support its own services, but was then adopted by JISC for access management of its national services.
