Re: Resources for Planning a New/Renovated Lab

From:"Judith A. LaDuc"

Hi Tracey,

I have recently survived this experience myself.  I wrote an article for our
state Histo newsletter and the article was well received.  The article
basically outlines how I prepared for the design, how my personal experience
progressed and the final outcome (good!).  If you would like a copy of the
article, I'll be happy to forward it to you.  There are a couple of
references at the end of the article that were useful to me.

Good luck!
