The region within $10^\circ$ of the Galactic Plane at longitudes $l>330^\circ$ and $l<60^\circ$ is the most intense portion of the sky in high energy gamma rays. Most of the emission here arises from cosmic ray interactions with ambient matter, and a model of the diffuse emission was developed and used to aid in analysis of EGRET data for point sources. When a likelihood analysis of EGRET observations including sources and diffuse emission is made, several localized regions, consistent with point source emission are found. These sources include the pulsar PSR B1706-44, unidentified source GRO J1758-23 (=2CG006-00), and eleven probable sources, also unidentified. A compilation of sources, their energy spectra and information about time variability for this region of the Galactic plane will be presented.
