Where are we?

Media Studies is offered at Pietermaritzburg and Howard College campuses. Each campus has a physical library where relevant books, journals, theses and other resources can be located. Online access is available on and off campus to a wide range of resources.

The access for databases when you are out/ 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.



To find books and other resources is easy via our Worldcat search engine, iCatalogue. You just have to click on the link Icatalogue when you are at the library homepage.  If you are not on campus you need to use the off campus route. Once at the off campus page, click on iCatalogue and then fill in your LAN login and password.
