New online catalogue for Salvation Army archives

The Salvation Army International Heritage Centre has launched its first online catalogue. The Centre holds strong archival collections relating to the work of the Salvation Army in Africa.

See especially:

  • The Salvation Army’s international administration, including the Africa Zonal Department (AFZ), Chief of the Staff’s Office (COS) and the General’s Office (GEN).
  • ‘Overseas Territories’, such as Nigeria (NG), Zimbabwe (ZIM) and Zambia (ZAM).
  • Books and pamphlets in the reference library, for instance those written by / about SA missionaries and various African ‘Territories’ (such as H/ZIM.4, X/BEC.101).

Only a small fraction of the SA’s total holdings are currently available via the catalogue; additional catalogue records will be added several times a year. Some of the work behind the catalogue is described in the Heritage Centre’s blog , which will be regularly updated with posts relating to the collections.

The Salvation Army International Heritage Centre comprises archives, a library and a museum. Its collections relate to the Salvation Army’s work worldwide.
