UCT Library
UCT Libraries came into being in 1905 when the printed resources accumulated by the then South African College were, for the first time, assembled into an organised collection by the incumbent professor of modern languages.
UCT Libraries is providing a virtual library service, which will be centred on:

  • delivery of electronic information to users
  • continued support for the full suite of research data services online
  • support for the online teaching programme
  • Sourcing, where possible, open access books and e-versions of textbooks with multiple licenses to support the online teaching
  • Facilitating access to additional information and knowledge resources that are being made available by publishers/vendors at this time.

Librarians will provide learning and research support by offering/providing an in-depth reference service which includes, amongst others, lists of electronic information sources, course and assignment support, virtual research landscape analysis services to masters and PhD students, reference management and literature reviews.
