[UK] National Archives Launches New Library Catalogue

Posted by Jan Meisels Allen

The National Archives of the United Kingdom has replaced its library catalogue of published works with a new open-source system called Koha. This new web-based system uses the data transformed from the previous library catalogue. New features include an RSS feed of new book lists, access to bibliographies on specialist subjects created by records specialists at The National Archives. To read more about the new system go to:
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/603.htm.
While looking at the site, look at the latest document releases and document release archive --buttons are on the left.

Thank you to Dick Eastman and the Eastman On-Line Genealogy Newsletter for alerting us to the new system.
