Online Library Catalogue – KOHA
KOHA is an open source integrated library system, used world-wide by public, school and special libraries. The name comes from a Māori term for a gift or donation. The MGS Library/Resource Centre has produced an online catalogue of all books and reference material held in the library, searchable by title, author and keyword. Many family histories have been donated to MGS by researchers and provide a valuable source of genealogical information. They have been catalogued – patrons using the MGS website can search the online KOHA catalogue at KOHA to find out more about these family histories. You can search from home or at the Library.
