James Haule, a co-compiler of the Complete Concordance to the Novels of Virginia Woolf, offers his suggestions on how such a tool might be used, and the "Guide to Collections" provides up-to-date information on holdings and access requirements for libraries with significant Bloomsbury manuscripts in the U.K., the U.S., and Canada. Vara Neverow and Merry Pawlowski's "Preliminary Bibliographic Guide to the Footnotes of Three Guineas
" is a valuable new resource for researchers. There are also reviews of new books by Claire Kahane, Bonnie Kime Scott, Laura Doyle, and others. Woolf Studies Annual
is an essential asset for anyone working on Woolf.
