In this paper, two problems in publishing syllabus information for inter-university credit exchange systems are discussed. The first is overhead cost in preparing and publishing syllabi of the systems every year. The second is that the Website presenting the syllabi lacks a search facility that allows a student to find the courses satisfied by complex search condition. In order to solve the above problems, an XML-based syllabus repository system (XSRS) which integrates syllabus data from affiliated universities is proposed. In order to minimize the impact of implementing this system on faculty staff operations, a technique that can extract syllabus data from the documents edited by some office software is also presented.
