Following the devastating loss of some special collections at the Jagger Library, our vendors have generously provided temporary access to their historical databases spanning multiple subject disciplines. These databases also contain materials relating to Africa and African history. Explore the list of databases and ebooks
Please email our Special Collections Team on firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to query the current status of particular collections or those you have donated.
Jagger Library Memorial
On 22 April 2021, we held a #JaggerLibraryMemorial to share this devastating loss together as Libraries staff. For those who have nurtured the African Studies collections over many decades, it's a loss akin to losing a child. For many, a part of their soul. Today we lay in ashes, but tomorrow we will rise again. #UCTFire #UCTWillRiseAgain
