States was diminishing more rapidly than had been anticipated
and that additional allocations would not be made available for
the rest of 1969 and possibly 1970. Therefore, the Program was
discontinuing acquisition of monograph publications for all ex­

even increase its activity. The experience of the past five years
has shown that the Israel PL-480 Program is making a very signifi­
cant contribution to the development and strengthening of Amer­
ican library resources in the field of Jewish studies.
