A query language for heterogeneous information resource management systems is presented and discussed. The language focuses on query formation, assertion expression and function construction required for a generalized information resource base. The SYNTHESIS approach concentrates on the development of query languages for object-oriented databases enriched by deductive capabilities. The SYNTHESIS project aims at supporting a generalized homogeneous representation and integrated use of different computerized forms of data, programs and other sources of knowledge that constitute an organization's information resource.
