If you have any materials you would like to donate or to be held in the library or archive, please contact us! Donations to help us build the collections are very welcome. Please visit our donations page and see our acceptance policy.

Some of our greatest treasures came from apparently random heaps of smelly paper. So if you have access to materials, be it pamphlets, bulletines, zines, papers, letters, etc. please DO NOT throw them out, but let us know!

We are always striving to make this Digital Library as accurate and user-friendly as possible. However we are limited by software, IT-know how, etc. If there are any people out there who could assist us in putting together a more user-friendly database, please get in touch!
