Visiting and recording at Smithsonian Libraries. Here with Kim Alexander, Lilla Vekerdy (Library Goddess at the Dibner Library — one of 21 Smithsonian Libraries), and Katherine Neville.
In The Vault at the Cullman Library—Dr. Livingston’s rifle, Sir Richard Burton’s (explorer, not actor’s) etchings. Also, Isaac Newton’s “garden notes,” on a slip of folded paper at the Dibman Vault.

Join us on Carmen’s Facebook Page every day to play our Word of the Day game! Carmen finds a great new word and you join in with what you think it might mean, without the help of our dear friend Google.
Today’s Word from Carmen is:
“This polysyllabic mouthful is actually something quite common. I’m cackling to myself as I write this. What is the meaning of this devilish word? You must decide! I’ll post the answer at the end of the day tomorrow.
Remember, no looking up the answer. Just post as mad and impossible a definition as you like.”
