You have access to all the print and online information resources at the Library. A valid university card must be presented at the circulation counter for all the borrowing of the print resources. Find quotas and loan periods applicable to various client groups here. E-books and articles are available for downloads. It will be helpful to watch the videos on how you can download Ebooks on Overdrive and EBSCOhost.
Interlibrary and Intercampus loans
Intercampus Loans (ICL) is a service through which material held by one UJ campus Library is sent to another UJ campus library for your convenience. Read more about this service here.
Moreover, the Interlibrary Loan department provides a service to researchers by obtaining material not owned by the University of Johannesburg libraries. Material is obtained from libraries in South Africa and abroad. If the desired item cannot be located in South Africa, you will receive a notification indicating the additional cost of an international request.
