Can the Archivist (from Heroes of Horror) use the Dark Knowledge feature to benefit himself too?

For example, say an archivist uses Dark Knowledge to boost the attack rolls of his party. Would the archivist get this bonus too?

The benefits of dark knowledge also apply to the archivist

The Player's Handbook General Guidelines and Glossary on ally says, "A creature friendly to you. In most cases, references to 'allies' include yourself" (304). As the archivist special ability dark knowledge, in part, says that the archivist grants "his allies benefits against the creatures they face" (Heroes of Horror 83) and does not say that the ability exclude the archivist herself, the archivist benefits from her own dark knowledge ability just like the rest of her allies.
