Re: Resources for Planning a New/Renovated Lab
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.
