IAPSOP was formed in late 2009, when it became apparent to IAPSOP's founders that (a) the repository libraries traditionally expected to retain Spiritualist and occult periodicals were in many cases removing these from circulation, or from their collections entirely; (b) that independent students and researchers were in some cases duplicating effort and expense to have materials preserved digitally, largely for their private use; and (c) that digital libraries like Google Books were completely indifferent to the special curatorial problems of periodical literature generally, and occult literature in particular.

"The IAPSOP is a US-based private organization focused on the digital preservation of Spiritualist and occult periodicals published between the Congress of Vienna and the start of the Second World War.
Our all-volunteer staff digitizes, indexes and makes available free-of-charge these periodicals, in our archive , for use by students and researchers"

You may also be interested in checking out some of the other topics in this section, mac - if you haven't already done so.  There are some comparably fine collections of free online reading available on the subject of Spiritualism and Mediumship to be found here in the Read Online Library section; not least an excellent up to date collection of classic and out of print books lovingly compiled and provided by Leo Bonomo , here  grarrow https://mediumshipandlifeafterdeath.wordpress.com/2010/07/31/excellent-and-out-of-print-spiritual-books/#comments

Thanks, kk, but nowadays I can't often settle to read even printed books and screen reading I find very irksome and hard work.  It's become worse as I've grown older but I always read to acquire specific knowledge anyway and now the little I do know is enough for my needs.

thanks again
