Erowid Announcement #28
April 7, 2002
Greetings Entheophiles,

Happily, after our hardware difficulties in December and January, we've been mostly free of hardware problems for the last 2 1/2 months.

We're now in the middle of working on the interesting yet tedious project of creating a large online database from the Albert Hofmann Foundation library. The collection includes thousands of journal references and other papers about LSD, psilocybin, and related topics, dating from as early as 1945. We're working with MAPS and the Albert Hofmann Foundation to make this avalailable as a research resource. If all goes as planned, the first public beta of this will be available in the next month.

We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at
