Research Library

NEW! Search our catalog on OCLC’s WorldCat at:

As of February 2024, the Moravian Archives has established their own subscription with OCLC to catalog our books and periodicals. You can search the research library at the above link. Previously, this library was only searchable via GemeinKat, maintained by the Moravian Music Foundation (see below).

In the fall of 2015, the Moravian Music Foundation and the Moravian Archives combined our reference collections located in the Reading Room and classified them according to the Library of Congress cataloging system. The Moravian Music Foundation offers us and you a service, GemeinKat Catalog, which will help scholars more easily locate items within our extensive collections. Since the catalog includes the collections of the Moravian communities from the 18th through the 21st centuries, the name GemeinKat is reflective of that purpose (Gemein– from the German word for community or fellowship, and Kat for catalog). Our thanks to our friends at the Foundation for providing us this service. These items have been cataloged in the OCLC WorldCat bibliographic database.
