FINDING UKZN Library Resources via Worldcat Local

UKZN library now has a new library system and there are some changes.

The major change is that the library no longer has its own unique catalogue. The 'icatalogue' function on World Cat Local tells you what physical, digital and multimedia resources (books, journals, articles, DVDs, theses etc) are available in world libraries including UKZN. The UKZN library catalogue is now integrated into this world catalogue.

There are two ways of searching. At the basic level, click on 'icatalogue' and type words, a title or author into the search box. Once you get a results list, limit your search by format, time period etc (from the left hand side column). UKZN library resources are listed first in the results. Results are presented in terms of relevance; this can be changed to reflect newest first, by title etc.

The advanced search allows you to be more specific before you you actually run a search. Scroll down to the bottom of the page where you can indicate a UKZN only search, limit by date, format and it is possible to combine different kinds of search terms. In advanced search you can also select your own databases to search.

 A Guide to using World Cat Local will be available.

Next Training session will held on 8th - 19th of August 2016


The Drama subject support page  provides information for undergraduates, graduates and researchers in general in the field of Drama and Performance studies.The guide introduces you to the different information resources and associated activities in the academic environment.

Where are we?

For off-campus access  you will need to authenticate yourself first with your university lan login and password. Not all databases provide off campus access. It is best to access the University site via Firefox.
