Conservation supplies in Boston

From: Barbara Sagraves <Barbara.Sagraves>

I was asked by readers of the DistList who could not attend the
recent ACRL/New England Preservation/Conservation Interest Group
Fall Meeting if I would supply a list of the places we visited in
Boston.  Here is the list as well as a few other stores that are of
interest.  Inclusion or exclusion from the list should not be viewed
as an endorsement or rejection by ACRL New England.

The stores in the first half of the list may be reached by traveling
the Red Line on the MTA to the given stop and then walking to the
street address.
