Hello. Are any of you members of the London Library? If so, then her_welshness would like to interview you for her dissertation.

No, but I'd quite like to be :-)

Do it, do it! It's only 300-odd quid!

I would be a member, if only they cared about the sciences. If anyone knows of an equivalent institution that carries scientific journals, I want you to tell me.

Probably pointless of me to say this, but the Wellcome library..?

Very specific though, isn't it? Just history of medicine?

Yeah. But it's still science, innit. What about these then - again, i'm sure that either you know about them or they don't suit your porpoises, but just in case (because i am a librarian and therefore want to help anyone with library queries)

That's the sort of thing I'm looking for, but for the sciences in general. My main interests are mathematics, computer science and physics.

The history of medicine is interesting too, but for me it's more something to see in a museum than to read about in journals. The museum of the Royal College of Surgeons is definitely worth a visit.

Someone should add it to RGL!

Is that the one on Lincoln's Inn Fields or whatever the road that goes round the park is called?

Yes. It's free too! And considering that it's just round the corner from work I really should pop in again sometime soon so I can write a nice fresh piping-hot review.

I suppose I should also review the excellent Bank of England museum.

Yes, yes, you should. I didn't even know it existed.

Oh, we should probably actually add all the museums in London, shouldn't we. Do you have any idea how many there are?

Hello. When you say the London Library, i guess you don't mean Senate House, do you?

Tut. I am sorry. I just noticed that the words "the London library" are a link to, well, the London library, not the university of London library, also known as Senate House. I will sod off now and let the grown-ups talk.

No, no, don't sod off! Tell me something exciting! I need a break from work.

Well, the most exciting thing in my life at the moment, is that i'm back at work (part-time, building hours up gradually) so i'm afraid i don't have much to tell...

Nope – I mean the one I linked to, in St James's Square :)
