Some fabulous libraries for research

A lot of really interesting stuff has been written about drugs.  In fact, one the things I like most about the study of drugs is how many disciplines it crosses.  It seem that everyone has an opinion about the subject. 

Fortunately for those of us who can't get enough scholarship about drugs, the Drug Policy Alliance has the Lindesmith Library.  This collection is search-able online by going here and is well maintained by talented staff.  Those of us lucky to in or near New York City can make arrangements to visit the hard copy collection.  I've had many meetings in their library, and there is lots of enticing stuff.

For those of you with a passion for the history of medicine, my work place, The New York Academy of Medicine has a really interesting historical collection in a beautiful space.  They are doing a lot of work on digitizing parts of the collection.  You can see some of their digital exhibits here.
