Frequently Asked Questions
How can I help?
If you want to help with this project, buy my books or via PayPal.
Since when is this going on?
The online version of this database started in August 2004. A couple of years earlier, I started with a software that only worked when installed on a computer.
Who is entering the content?
While several who started working dropped out again, a few trusted workers are helping. Here are the top three contributers: Denis Behr (39,770 entries), Lorenz Schär (11,846 entries), Harapan Ong (2,602 entries).
Can you send me a copy of a trick or manuscript?
I am not interested in trading photocopies of books or manuscripts that are rare or out of print, so please do not ask. To actually look up the items listed on the site, you'll need to have access to the publication itself.
I cannot find the book I am looking for. What now?
If you want to see the content of a specific book (except The James File), let me know - maybe I have it here and can put it on the to-do list.
What can I do when I notice a mistake?
Please let me know via! Then I'll fix it.
What system do you use?
The source code is written by myself in PHP and it is not a commercially available database software.
What about those CARC links?
The Links to the Conjuring Arts Research Library are only useable in the CARC in NYC itself due to copyright reasons.
