Go to a library and see if the book has the information you need. 
Decide whether to photocopy a few pages (for a specific job) or 
ask your lab to buy a copy of the book as a resource for all who
work there. Every lab needs several books, and provision of time 
for the workers to read them.
Carson's Histotechnology is a first-rate text, notable for giving 
the rationales of staining methods, practical instructions, 
photomicrographs of well stained examples and references for 
the readers who want to know more.
