Physical closure of UKZN libraries

The physical library was closed to users from the 18th December 2020 and reopened on 1 February 2021.

We will continue working remotely and business communication will continue as per lockdown regulations. Librarians remain available to provide virtual support for teaching, learning and research.


In 2021 the libraries open on weekdays from 8am - 10pm for students and staff who are permitted to return to campus (those who have permits).

No browsing of the collections will be allowed (nobody is allowed to go to the bookshelves), however, a book retrieval service will be offered. Users may submit requests for circulating material. Books may be returned to the Issue Desks or Book drop boxes. Users who do not have permission to access campuses are requested to keep the items until campuses re-open. All items on loan will be renewed and library fines for overdue material will be waived.

Contact the library on:

Gender Studies libguide provides information for undergraduates, graduates and researchers in general in the field of Tourism.  The aim of this guide is to help you to find your way through the information resources needed for your research projects.
