We're in the midst of working with a group that is creating an on-
line networking tool called CommuiShare.  It's not set up 
specifically for CBPR, but individuals within the PHENND network 
(which at this point number over 3,000 faculty, staff, students, 
CBOs, etc) can post items in a "I want to 
share/discuss/recommend"... format.  It will be searchable and 
people can categorize themselves.  I anticipate that this might be 
useful for connecting faculty and organizations for all kinds of 
projects including Community Based Research.
