Small Introduction:
This is a project I am heading as part of the ASM Education Division,
Division W.
I am posting it here, as well as on the ASM Listservs to make sure that
the request reaches as many people as possible.
We shall make these materials accessible on the WWW.
If you have any questions about this or wish to assist, please contact
Sue Katz (skatzx at arizona.midwestern.edu)
