The May 25, 1998 issue of INFORMATIONWEEK magazine has a helpful listing of
Y2K web sites that I thought I'd pass along for your information.

WEB SITE FOR TESTING 2000 BEYOND THE MAINFRAME

COMPUTER INFORMATION CENTRE
www.compinfo.co.uk/index.htm
Collection of links to vendor statements on product compliance, compliance
lists compiled by others and related articles.

FEDERAL CIO COUNCIL
y2k.policyworks.gov/srch/y2ksrch1.cfm
Searchable database of vendor-supplied data on product compliance with
federal agency comments.

GREENWICH MEAN TIME
www.gmt-2000.com
One of the first to foresee the problem of PC readiness for 2000.  Has
independently tested thousands of PCs; also offers Check 2000 diagnostic tool.

IBM
www.ibm.com/IBM/year2000
General year 2000 information as well as IBM and non-IBM product compliance
data.

INFOLIANT
www.network-advisor.com
Fee-based service providing data on 2000 compliance for desktop systems.
Also provides for E-mail notification when a vendor of interest releases
compliance data.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA
www.itaa.org/2000cert.htm
Certifies processes used by IT vendors to bring products into compliance.
Respondents undergo review by the Software Productivity Consortium.
Results, including date of product compliance, are available through links
from a list of more than 71 vendors.

MICROSOFT
www.microsoft.com/year2000
Provides year 2000-compliance status for most Microsoft software, including
Windows NT 4.0 (both servers and workstations), Windows 95, Office 4, Office
95, and Office 97 (standard and professional editions).  Also explains how
PC-clock information is used on Microsoft products compliant with the use of
patches and service packs.  Compaq, Digital Equipment, NCR, and Tandem
provide status and recommendations about Microsoft products on their hardware.

MITRE
www.mitre.org/technology/cots/COMPLIANCE_CAT.html
Searchable database of hardware and software compliance.

NATIONAL SOFTWARE TESTING LABORATORY
www.nstl.com
Independently tests PCs for year 2000 compliance.  Lists certified products
and lets vendors use its logo on certified products.

TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY
www.ttuhsc.edu/pages/year2000/ttuy2k.htm
Year 2000 resources with links to vendor compliance statements, articles,
organizations, and other materials.

UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA
csn.uneb.edu/year2000/PCSoftwareCompliance.htm
List of PC software product compliance with links to vendor Web sites.

U.S. ARMY
www.army.mil/army-y2k/cots.htm
A searchable hardware and software compliance database.

U.S. ARMY TECHNICAL INTEGRATION CENTER
www.hqisec.army.mil/y2kweb/y2kresults.html
PC testing of hardware platforms, BIOS, and operating systems.

WASHINGTON STATE
www.wa.gov/dis/2000/6_survey.htm
Compliance survey letters to IT vendors, including embedded system vendors,
with responses and vendor Web-site links.

This would have been a good time to have a scanner.  Have tried to double
check all the periods, slashes, etc.  Hope they are all in the right places.
If not, I suggest you look at INFORMATIONWEEK.  They always have a wide
variety of topics dealing with IT technology and issues.  Never have seen
anything relating to disabilities and technology but a good cross section of
IT information.

I have not personal interest in this publication.  Just a subscriber and
thought the previous information would be of interest.

Does anyone know if there is any risk of year 2000 compliance in any of the
disability technology accommodations?  Your students, faculty and co-workers
may be using software which may require modification and testing.  How about
your own departmental reports?

Footnote to:  Mr. Brian Gillooly, Editor, INFORMATIONWEEK:

This note is going to educators at universities and K-12, librarians,
vocational rehabilitation professionals and others involved in providing
computer accommodations to people who are disabled.  With your readership of
IT professionals and the Americans with Disabilities ACT opening doors of
opportunity for people who are disabled, the use of computers is a logical
and practical place for people who are disabled to seek employment.  It
would be beneficial to your readers and people who are disabled if
INFORMATIONWEEK would investigate how computers are being used and publish a
series of articles on the subject.  Thank you in advance for your consideration.
