Notes:

  • (a) Bibliographical databases: those developed regarding the Enclopedia and subsequent initiatives are effectively separate from those developed in relation to the international organization preoccupations of the UIA.
  • (b) Visualization and sonification: these facilities were developed as a means of providing an integrative approach to the various databases
  • (c) Diversitas was adopted as the name of the online archive for the full range of databases
