  1. What a smart idea. That should save us all a lot of time in planning a research trip. I hope too there are similar guides for other cities.

    1. I agree, Wendy! Such a great idea! Hopefully, there will be more available soon. Thanks!

  2. Cheri & Wendy, this brings back memories of our trip to Richmond back in May. That was a wonderful learning experience! Like both of you, I would love to have books like this for other locations too.

    1. It was so much fun! Hope we can meet up at another conference sometime!
