         Even though Rebecca gave a wonderful description of coverslipping, 
this is a technique that benefits from a hands-on demonstration.  I would 
recommend that you call the Phelps County Hospital, ask for the laboratory 
and see if they have a histology department.  Ask the histologist if she/he 
would be so kind as to teach you how to coverslip.  If they don't have a 
histology department, ask for hematology. This was the hardest manual 
technique for me to master as a novice histologist and I cannot imagine 
learning how to do this technique by reading about it.  There may also be a 
private pathology lab in Rolla that you can access (my hubby went to UMR 
and my first child was born at the hospital) but I have been gone from 
there for many years and I am sure things have changed.
         Good Luck and, remember, NO air bubbles allowed:-)
