[ed:  please feel welcomed to copy COMM-ORG with your 
responses to Robin's query.  Some thoughts from me below.]

From: "Robin Najar" <r.najar at cbpr.org>

I am looking for a way to get a database up and running on the web 
that would be used by individuals looking to network with others 
and find resources for the practice of Community-Based 
Participatory Research.  We are looking for methods that other 
non-profits have used to create databases.  If anyone has any 
directions they can point me in, it would be very much appreciated. 


[ed:  it is a shame that PARnet is no more, as they had a very nice 
database.  I have also been part of a project over the past 5 years 
developing this practice in a number of locations, and we are at the 
point now that we will soon be starting a list serv for people 
interesting in trading resources on CBPR and its related practices.  
You can also find some collections of resources, though not 
necessarily searchable databases, on the COMM-ORG "Action 
Research" page at http://comm-org.utoledo.edu/research.htm ]
