The electromagnetic probe has long been an important tool for studying nucleon and nuclear structure and dynamics. High energy electron scattering can probe distances of less than 1 fm where quark degrees of freedom are expected to play an observable role. A new generation of medium energy accelerators, operating CW with energies of 0.5 – 6 GeV, has recently come into operation. These enhanced capabilities, particularly the 100% duty factor and kinematic reach, will dramatically improve our ability to carry out coincidence studies. Storage ring facilities at MIT-Bates and NIKHEF make possible unique studies with thin polarized and unpolarized internal nuclear targets at relatively high luminosity.
