Scope of this Project:—
Information gathering for this project is designed to encompass as many sources as possible. However, the current scope of this undertaking is limited to documents already in our library and publicly accessible online resources. Durng the first phase of this project, our goal is to mine the vast amount of material already on hand and to catalogue other existing resources for future mining. Once this framework has been established, we feel it will serve as a solid foundation for the project and enable us to better focus future research efforts.
