The Cambridge Structural Database System (CSDS), comprising the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and its associated software, as available in mid‐2000 is described. The validated information content, comprehensive literature coverage and statistical data for the CSD are summarized. CSDS software for search, retrieval, analysis and display of database content is also reviewed, and typical research applications of the CSDS in structural chemistry and biology are briefly indicated. A new software component of the CSDS, IsoStar (a knowledge base of intermolecular interactions derived from the CSD and the PDB) is also summarized.
