    Databases
    ACCENT - Accent variations
    A database of alternative character sets and their correspondences, ACCENT allows easy lookup of alternative represntation of non-ASCII characters used under different protocols - e.g. ASCII, ANSI/Windows, HTML-N, HTML-A, IBASCII, etc. ACCENT can generate conversion files to be used in conjunction with CNV-41, a simple DOS-based program - made available on line and by e-mail request - that can convert between any two sets of character representations.

    INFOHAB - Information Habitat: Where Information Lives
    The initial database for Information Habitat: Where Information Lives; succeeded by the NGOS@UN database. During the active life of INFOHAB, it was the locus of major growth in its structure and contents, and was used to manage, inter alia, databases for key NGO Committees - on Human Settlements, Social Development, Sustainable Development, the NGO Steering Committee to the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development, and the preliminry database for participants in preparations for the Millennium Forum.

    NGOS@UN - ngos@un - Non-Governmental Organizations at the United Nations
    NGOS@UN was designed as a catalyst for a cooperative information ecology framework to work with the Secretary-General of the United Nations in response to a request from the Economic and Social Council to make every effort to enhance and streamline, as appropriate, practical arrangements to facilitate the participation of non-governmental organizations in the work of the United Nations - and specifically to make effective use of database technology.

    NGOS@UN grew out of the INFOHAB database, and integrated extensive information - from disparate sources - of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) accredited to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and to the Global Conferences of the 1990s. As it developed, NGOS@UN grew significantly in size and structure incorporating major new sections, including record of NGOs in the process of seeking accreditation with ECOSOC, historical data on NGO accreditation, and information on official United Nations documents pertaining to NGO Accreditation and the work of the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations.
