Library System – KOHA

The Reuben Marambii library is automated, and uses an open source library management system called KOHA. Here we illustrate the basics of using the system:

  1. Access the system
    Type http://opac.must.ac.ke in the address bar of your web browser. You will see a page like one on the right.
  2. Conduct a search
    Type your search word at the search bar. Eg economics. You will see results displayed in a list as shown below.
    Write down the call number and locate item from the appropriate shelf.
  3. Retrieve the item from the shelves
    The library organizes its information resources using an international system called the Library of Congress Classification Scheme, LCCS. Here, alphabets and numbers are used to represent subjects eg H for Social Sciences, G Geography, Q Pure Sciences. To code a book, a combination of letters and numbers are used. Eg HF5565, QD256, L128
    Each book in the library is given a number on the spine called a Call Number which is made up of the subject number, initials of the author and year of publication. Books on the shelf are then organized alphanumerically in ascending order by the call number on the spine i.e., the long back edge of a book.
