Book Loans

Inter-library loans consist of two parts: Inter-campus loans and Inter-library loans.

Inter-campus loans are services available to all students and staff members of the university, free of charge. If an item is only available at one of the other UJ libraries you can request it,  You will then be informed via e-mail of its arrival at your 'home' library.

Inter-library loans are only available to registered post-graduate students and to UJ staff members. If an item is available in another South African library it can be obtained free of charge for your use. If the item is only available from a library outside of South Africa, your request will be sent back to you indicating that it will cost you R75 should you want to continue with the request.
