The Library's catalogue indicates what books are available at UKZN and in which library and section of a library, as well as the current status of a book eg is it in Academic Reserves, out on loan, on order etc.
Training sessions on how to use the catalogue are offered at the beginning of each semester and whenever there is a need, or, see your subject librarian.
The Library offers an inter-campus library loan as well as an inter-library loan service for items not available at UKZN. Please give your request to the Circulation desk at any of the libraries. Books take time to be posted from other libraries in the country so please plan for at least a two week delay before a print item arrives. Journal articles are usually scanned and emailed. There is sometimes a cost involved (staff will notify you of the exact amount payable). Please consult the library inter library loans link for further information.
Prescribed and recommended books: Academic Reserves
Prescribed and recommended books are usually kept in the Academic Reserves sections of the libraries. Academic Reserves materials may not be taken out of the library during the day but may be borrowed for an evening and over weekends. Academic Reserves material may be used in the library for two hours only. Photocopying services are available in the library.
An eBook is "an electronic version" of a printed book. Sometimes it exists without a print equivalent.
