Abstract: Studies of astrophysical non-LTE media require the combination of atomic and molecular spectroscopic and collisional data often described differently in various databases. SPECTCOL is a client tool that implements VAMDC (Virtual Atomic and Molecular Data Center, standards, retrieve spectroscopic information from CDMS ( and collisional data from BASECOL( All transfer of data between the client and the databases use the VAMDC-XSAMS schema ( The spectroscopic and collisional information is combined and useful outputs (ascii or xsams) are provided for the study of the interstellar medium. The paper gives an introduction to the SPECTCOL tool (release of SPECTCOL can be found on htpp://
