In this document we report on the state of development of the Active Recommendation Project (ARP) for the Library Without Walls (LWW) project. This includes details about the infrastructure built, as well as algorithms used. We also report on the short-term and long-term research and development plans for this project. The full research and development report can be downloaded in pdf format (LANL only).
