Anomaly Archives Lending Library Opens In Austin Texas

Greetings UFO UpDates eListers,

It's been a while since I posted to this List - tho' it remains
one of my favorite e-lists of all time. My posts tend to be
sporadic but you can read past posts as far back as September
1998 under these email prefixes "elfis", "smiles",
"stephen.lewis", and "miles" if you go to the UFO UpDates



A brief reintroduction for those who don't know me. My name is
Stephen Miles Lewis but you can call me Miles or SMiles. I've
had a life-long interest (oh, who am I kidding, it's an
obsession) in all things anomalous, be they paranormal,
ufological, parapsychological, whatever. Here in Austin, Texas I
served as facilitator for a local UFO Experiencer Forum and
Study Group, State Section Director, editor of ELFIS Journal of
Possible Paradigms, editor of the Austin Para Times and
organizer of the ill-fated 38th annual National UFO Conference
of September 2001. Currently I host about 20 anomaly related web
sites via the Elfis Network.




For over ten years I've dreamed of founding a research lending
library to house my ever-growing book, magazine and clipping
collections. Well, that dream is finally a reality. Thanks to
serendipity and a friendship with Bob McGarey (see Ray
Stanford's Socorro Saucer in a Pentagon Pantry) of the Human
Potential Center, my archives have a home in which to birth this

Two of the role-models for the Anomaly Archives are the Archives
for UFO Research in Sweden and Rhea White's Exceptional Human
Experience Network and its Psiline database.



There are so many fine researchers on this List who each have
there own monumental research collections and projects; Jan
Aldrich's Project 1947, Wendy Connors' Faded Discs archive,
Jerome Clark and the CUFOS collection and others come to mind.
The Anomaly Archives hopes to work with these and the many other
fine researchers and research collections who network via this
and other e-lists.

Some of the organizations we have partnered with locally
include: Austin MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), Austin IONS
(Institute Of Noetic Science), INACS (Institute for Neuroscience
And Consciousness Studies), the Human Potential Center and

To those in the Central Texas region I invite you to come by
Friday, November 14th to see the Anomaly Archives. To those
farther afield, you are also invited to explore and join the
growing non-local Anomaly Community.
