From 27 November 2015 - 12 February 2016 we will be carrying out major renovation work in the area next to the Research Commons and postgraduate areas of the Chancellor Oppenheimer Library.

During this time noise and disruption will make studying in these areas difficult so we would encourage you to find an alternative space in the library.

History not only tells us where we come from, it also contains valuable lessons. Thus, the process of preserving history through the archive is vitally important. Recognising this, UCT recently launched Humanitec, which saw the digitisation of more than 14 000 objects from the 14 archival collections housed at UCT Libraries. Here is a snapshot of what is available through Humanitec, and in some of these collections.
