Valerie,
 
You didn't say exactly what you were looking for in the "Genie Guide" but 
while the "Guide to Genealogical Research" goes into a little more detail on 
the NARA records it only covers 40 to 45 Record Groups. There are 500+ 
Record Groups in NARA holdings.
 
The 3 volume set "Guide to Federal Records in the National Archives of the 
United States" is online at
_http://www.archives.gov/research/guide-fed-records/_ 
(http://www.archives.gov/research/guide-fed-records/) 
 
Using that then following it up with a search in NARA's Archival Research 
Catalog (ARC) at _http://www.archives.gov/research/arc/_ 
(http://www.archives.gov/research/arc/)  will give a series level description of the records. 
ARC has only about 68% of NARA's holdings described (it's a work in progress). 
If the records you are interested in are described in ARC you will have 
what you need to order the records.
