We would like to remind our users to carry your UCT ID card with you at all times. All library patrons are required to carry their UCT ID cards as the Libraries' regulations might require you to present it. Please help us to ensure our Libraries are used in a responsible manner.
UCT Libraries has been invited to join the Network of Data and Information Curation Communities (NeDICC).
From January 2016, UCT Libraries has decided to go cashless, and the reasons are three-fold:
to reduce the costs of handling cash across all the libraries (money will be saved on cash collection fees, bank charges and staff resources); to reduce the infrastructure requirements for cash handling and storage and; to reduce the potential physical risk to staff and students.
The move to a cashless environment will make our financial operations more efficient and cost effective.
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.
