This report describes research efforts into the access of distributed heterogeneous databases through an encyclopedia facility. Specifically, several data management tools that have been prototyped to date are described to include database registration, schema integration, browsing, an Artificial intelligence based standard data element naming tool, and an Information Resource Dictionary System IRDS repository. This toolset has been integrated under the X windows interface management system. Plans for future efforts to include additional AI techniques for data management, security, distributed query formulation, and distributed query processing are also discussed.
