Useful Library Resources
he University of Johannesburg Library’s Special Collections comprise collections of primary source material and rare books.
The Special Collections’ chief aim is to provide a valuable, unique research resource for the UJ community, as well as an easily accessible service to all researchers interested in southern Africa.
Although the primary source material and rare books cover many aspects of southern Africa, our focus is on Johannesburg and the Witwatersrand: its history, architectural heritage and people. Within this focus, our strengths are: mining and mineworkers and business, especially family business and small business development in Johannesburg.
Johannesburg, being a cosmopolitan city, has citizens from many different cultures and traditions and the anthropological collection of southern African cultures and languages is a valuable resource in this regard.
