      >library. Once users install the interface locally, they may seamlessly
      >access and navigate the numerous texts, maps, and images available on the

      >crime fell 22% from the same year and over 50% from 1973. Some analysts
      >have suggested that the large decrease in the 1990s, particularly in
      >robbery rates, which fell 17% in 1997 alone, can be attributed in large

      >With an unemployment rate of approximately 70%, "adults with severe
      >disabilities are one of the largest minorities in the US without jobs." The
      >Presidential Task Force on Employment of Adults with Disabilities was
      >formed in March 1998 "to examine programs and policies related to
      >employment of adults with disabilities, to determine what changes,
      >modifications and innovations may be necessary to remove barriers to work
      >faced by adults with disabilities and to recommend options for such
      >changes." Their first report, completed in November 1998, was recently
      >placed online by the Department of Labor. At the site, users can read the
      >various sections of the report in HTML format or download the full report
      >in text or .pdf format. In addition to recommendations to the President,

      >ones, marquees, and rail cars. At the site, users can join Cottingham on a
