UKZN Libraries have an extensive collection of print and electronic books. You may borrow items from the print collection using your student or staff card. Electronic books are accessible via the 'Electronic Resources' tab on the library webpage.
BELOW IS A LISTING OF THE VARIOUS CATEGORIES OF THE BOOK COLLECTION
Most recent South African texts and copies of prescribed and recommended books are usually kept in the Academic Reserves section of each library. Academic Reserves materials may not be taken out of the library during the day but may be borrowed overnight or for weekends. An advance booking system is available, please consult the AR staff.
The general book stock is arranged on the open shelves in Dewey (number) order. Books on Surgery can be found at the broad number 617. You may confirm your borrowing privileges by checking on the library webpage, under the 'general information' tab. The catalogue on the Library's website may be used to track the location and availability of an item.
Discipline specific dictionaries and encyclopedias and other reference works are available in the libraries. This material is to be used only in the library and is not loanable.
The eBook collection is currently being developed to supplement and enhance the print collection. eBooks also facilitate greater access by more library users. Importantly access to the eBook collections can be obtained from the library webpage under the 'electronic resources' tab. However, when you need to access any eBook and you are off-campus, you need to authenticate yourself as a user by logging in from the OFF-CAMPUS page. You will then be able to retrieve all eBooks available on the various databases. A few ebooks are listed to the right of this box.
Print and electronic copies of theses are available. Electronic versions of theses can be accessed from the ResearchSpace platform. This is UKZN Library's repository of all submitted theses and dissertations. For more information, please click on the Dissertations & theses tab at the top of this page
