StratML Search Services

  1. Mark Logic's StratML search service prototype contains all of the plans currently in the collection, whose URL's are provided below. Please contact Owen Ambur for the user name and password to access Mark Logic's prototype.
  2. Since StratML documents are plain text (XML) documents posted on the public Web, they are readily available for indexing by the search engines, like Google, abeit on an uncertain schedule. Thus, the major search engine indices may not contain the most recent submissions.
