Library policies and procedures

Items may be borrowed in accordance with the Library’s lending policy and only on presentation of one’s own library card. Under no circumstances are books (or any other materials) allowed to be removed from the library without checking them out according to set procedures. Items must be returned on or before the due date to library personnel at the circulation desk to avoid being fined. Fines are levied per item per day (or any part thereof) on all overdue items at a rate of R10 for reserve items and R2 for items from the general collection.

General collection

Undergraduate students may borrow 10 items from the general collection for 14 days, and in addition may borrow 2 items from the reserve shelf on overnight loan. Postgraduate students may borrow 15 items from the general collection for 30 days, and 4 items from the reserve shelf on overnight loan.
