Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC)

The Genealogical Institute of South Africa (GISA) has donated its research books and entire collection to CPUT Library Services.

GISA was situated in Stellenbosch and before closing down its Board decided to donate the geological collection, consisting of film rolls and apparatus, books, clippings, photographs and reference works.

“This collection belonged to the HSRC between 1971 and 1997 and forms the key collection of GISA,” said Petronella Coreejes-Brink, Co-ordinator: Special Collections at CPUT Libraries.

“The collection fits well and will complement the special collection that already exists within CPUT Libraries, it can thus add a lot of value to the collection of CPUT Libraries.”
