Cape Town Branch Library: Home



These are scholarly journals that are available online in electronic format. The electronic journals can have their print equivalents as well or can be published only in electronic format.

Remember with e-Journals you don’t have to go to the shelves to read an article, you can actually download the journal article, read, save as well as print as long as you have access to the internet.

The Unisa Library provides access to these scholarly journals through the e-Journal Finder which serves as an e-Journals catalogue. Therefore this is a tool we must use to find ejournals.
