Harm Reduction Victoria

Back Issues

The Whack Library

The library of magazines you see before you represents the vast body of work that HRV’s dedicated workers & volunteers have created over the last two and a half decades. Back issues of the magazine are provided in digital form for ease of access & in order to spread the harm reduction message as widely as possible.

To use, just click on the cover of the issue you wish to view & it will download as a virtual magazine. We have endeavored – through much trial and error – to keep the size of each issue as small as possible, while keeping the resolution sharp. If you have trouble reading the text, click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom of the page to veiw the pages in more detail. When the magnifying glass is activated, you can then use the plus & minus icons (at the top of the page) to veiw each page at your desired size.

IMPORTANT NOTE : We have 2 different versions of the magazines: FlipBook & PDF. The Flipbook versions provide a much better reading experience, but some devices are having trouble displaying them.  The PDF files provide easy access for everyone.
