Theses must be checked out at the library desk using your student card and may only be borrowed for a period of 2 hours for library use only.
Hardcopy journals and exam papers may only be used in the Library however the library has a large collection of online journals available on and off campus through its online databases. Exam papers can also be accessed online on Moodle.
Keep in mind that there are some databases that will not be searched because they are not supported by EBSCO. Some examples are: IHS, Arts Collection from ProQuest and LexisNexis
If you do not find your article in the Discover!, you still have options:
1. Search databases directly via Databases page
2. Request it from Inter Library Loan.
3. Ask a librarian for help.
Please note that the Short Loan, CDs and DVD collections are not renewable. Up to 2 renewals is allowed for some material.
Solution: Try another browser. If you use Edge or Internet Explorer, try downloading Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome (both are free, and work well with the library’s website and databases).

If you think you should be able to get the full text of an article but are not, please contact the library on 061 293 265
