FEBE - Engineering Management Libguide: Finding Books

Guide to useful library resources for Engineering Management Students

Print Books

The library catalogue enables you to establish which items (books, journals, e-books, reference material, etc.).  UJ possesses in its libraries. It will  indicate whether the book is available in print or electronic format.

To access the library catalogue, go to the UJ Website, select Library and then click on: UJ Library Catalogue

The default is on keywords. Other search options such as title, authorjournal title, subject, ISBN, etc. can also be selected and used for finding material.  The name of the library in which the item is to be found, is also given. If it is not at your home campus, you may request it through Inter-campus loans.
