Where are we?
The School of Law is located on the Pietermaritzburg and Howard College, Durban campuses. Both law centres have their own physical libraries containing a range of printed sources as well as study space, photocopiers and computers. Those resources that are available electronically are accessible from the tabs on this page.

Off campus access  is also available for some online resources. You will see the list of databases available. Once you have clicked on a database name, you may be asked to type in your usual student / staff login to authenticate yourself (the login you use for Learn). 



Google scholar

Google Scholar is a subset of Google that indexes more formal and scholarly literature in the public domain. It thus includes references to journal articles, Google Books, documents and reports etc. Google Scholar can only provide full text access to documents where they are freely available.  If UKZN Library pays for full text access to resources listed in Google Scholar, clicking on the title of an item will take you to the location of that full text.
