Note: Some of the organizations for which CoOL presents web pages use CoOL as their primary network (in other words, they "live" here). Others simply share their documents and the pages in CoOL have no official standing. While the documents are mounted with the organization's blessings, please do not consider these pages to be official publications or statements of those organizations.
