General Research Resources

  • Wayback Machine - A project of the Internet Archive, it catalogs 25+ years of searchable website history.
  • Internet Archive - A non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more.
  • Datenschlag - English pages - Datenschlag is a sadomasochist education and support group based in Germany and Austria. Since our main outreach is into the sadomasochist subculture of German-speaking countries, our publication language is mostly German. We are, however, very much interested in keeping in contact with sadomasochists from other countries to collect facts and knowledge on international SM traditions and customs.
  • GLBT Historical Society Museum & Archives - Founded in 1985, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (GLBT) Historical Society is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of LGBTQ public history. Our operations are centered around two sites: our GLBT Historical Society Museum, located since 2011 in the heart of San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood; and our Dr. John P. De Cecco Archives and Research Center, open to researchers in the Mid-Market district.
