The digital collection of HLIA can only be viewed at our information desk. The main reason for this is the regulation concerning copyright and privacy. However, the digital collection is growing rapidly and therefore more and more items will be available for peruse on our website.

Presently, we can already allow users to inspect unique documents online: IHLIA has a number of old periodicals at its disposal, such as COC Periodiek and Levensrecht as well as Der Eigene, which is considered the first homosexual magazine in the world. The first edition was published in 1896.
