Since the New Year, the Librarian has expanded the online Author-Index Catalogue with the addition of about eighty-five books and journal articles, which he hopes will be of interest to Order members in Scotland.
New acquisitions include:

[Baragwanath is situated in the Soweto area of Johannesburg.
