Erowid is shepherding the archiving of Sasha and Ann Shulgin's personal papers, photos, audio/video tapes, and other materials. As of October 2022, we need $40,000 to pay for direct, immediate costs of digitization. Erowid has already budgeted $60,000 in 2022, but we need additional funds to continue the process.

Alexander and Ann Shulgin are well-known elders who worked in the field of psychoactive research for decades. Their large collection of primary and secondary physical materials needs to be saved! (Organized, archived and made publicly available.)

History of the Shulgin Archiving
After years of consideration and preparation, the first of Alexander Shulgin's lab books were scanned and published by Erowid, with Sasha's permission, in 2007. The lab books contain detailed experience reports about a wide variety of substances, as well as notes on chemical processes, formulas, sketches, and hand-drawn graphs. The Erowid crew laboriously transcribed and re-formatted the hand-written lab books as they were digitized.

When the archiving project began, the Shulgins' trusted assistants, gregM and Tania, began redacting the names of individuals whose privacy should be protected. As the project evolved, more printed materials from Sasha and Ann's files were scanned and published. Trusted volunteers from the psychedelic community (experts in the field) have contributed their time to helping analyze, sort, and process this diverse collection.

Erowid volunteers work to transcribe the texts into our Experience Vaults and edit lab book images to improve readability. If you'd like to help with this project in the future, please volunteer at and learn about the current status of the project.

Funding pay for professional digitization (where appropriate), staff to help with organizing, scanning, and processing the Shulgin's personal files, and managers to wrangle the volunteers who donate their time.
