The role of national modules in the development of the iSybislaw (Database of World Slavic Linguistic Studies), which has the functions of information retrieval and research computer linguistic system is considered. Particular attention is paid to the prospects for the development of the Ukrainian module of this system, which the team of researches from the Institute of the Ukrainian Language of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine create since 2012. The approaches to solving problems of variability and synonymy of Ukrainian linguistic terms, their equivalence to terms in other Slavic languages in the language of keywords as information retrieval language of iSybislaw, the possibilities to optimize the search for information in the system and the formation of the computer thesaurus of modern linguistic terms are presented.

Comparison of the created Ukrainian module of iSybislaw with the basic vocabulary of Polish linguistic terms proves the necessity of finding criteria for the determination of equivalence between Ukrainian terms and other Slavic linguistic terms without distorting the real picture of their functioning in the Ukrainian scientific tradition. The interconnection of the iSybislaw system with other Slavic Internet resources will enable for its users to get acquainted with the wider and deeper time, genre and territorial perspective of studying particular Slavic language, as well as the state of Slavic studies in general in a certain national linguistic tradition.
