The University of Alabama-Birmingham holds the papers of John Smythies, a friend of Humphry Osmond who provided Aldous Huxley with his first taste of mescaline. A photo accompanies the collection that is quite beautiful.

As the Archivist at the Office of History I created a Twitter account to provide a way to connect the NIH Library and NLM with the History Office. Our office were not enthusiastic and were not familiar with it--historians and museum curators-- but I've put it up and rarely posted due to that. At NIH we are prevented from Facebook (only certain Institutes--NLM is allowed). I see some benefit if supported but as I have seen trends come and go I wonder if we have reached a critical mass of information sharing? Not sure and probably not.

We do need librarians and archivists. Ideally these individuals will insure that information, new technology and old technology is preserved.
Love that line "reality is where you find it". I miss the downtown Birmingham of my youth and memories. Sounds like it is doing okay.
