I'll be in DC next week and while my schedule is pretty tight I may see if I can run over to Dumbarton Oaks to visit the library. I've never been there before - does anyone have any suggestions? Keep in mind I'll likely only have 2-3 hours, max, to spend there.

Sorry I missed your post, though never having been there, I couldn't have advised you. How was it? Did you get anything useful done?

I never got to DO - I know one of the research associates a bit. She's working on their Vulgate Bible project. Spent all the time in the Capitol w/agency folks & politicians. And I can't say I accomplished a lot. Depressing place compared to 10-15 years ago.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear it was a bit of a disappointment.

It was all right, other than wondering what the heck people over there think they're doing.
