UKZN Library Services

There are libraries on all the five campuses. The libraries catering for the College of Humanities are: 

  • Howard College: EG Malherbe Library 
  • Pietermaritzburg: Cecil Renaud Library 
  • Edgewood: Edminson Education Library 

Please visit the library website at https://library.ukzn.ac.za/library-hours/ for operating hours in each Campus. Your student card is also your library card. You will need your card to enter the library as well as to borrow and renew library books. The library provides access to a wide range of books and journals in print and electronic format plus other resources. There is study space and computers in all libraries. Prescribed books for lectures are kept at the Academic Reserves at the Circulation Desk and cannot be removed from the library. 

Subject librarians are available to help you.
