Proposed and actual expenditures are compared. Activities undertaken are described, including needs assessment, materials surveyed, ordering of materials, kinds of materials purchased, processing of materials, introduction to the materials, and documentation of materials. The role of the library is discussed; the contributions of other organizations are summarized; and the impact of the project is considered.
