A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. A materials science project, Crystal Structure of CTA and CTP was a collaboration of the State University of New York at Stony Brook, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the DuPont Company to determine the structure of a group of curious crystals with potentially useful properties. The crystals were synthesized at DuPont and experimented with at both Stony Brook and Brookhaven using both the National Synchrotron Light Source and the High-Flux Beam Reactor. The only dedicated funding was from DuPont to Stony Brook to hire a postdoc to be responsible for obtaining data using Brookhaven's facilities. The work began in 1993 and the major paper published in 1995, which concluded the collaboration.
