Training Room and Library commons

Unisa students are encouraged to be self-sufficient in their academic information seeking behaviour and for this, the library endeavours to provide library training to students to equip them with necessary Information Literacy skills.  Appropriately, Information Literacy is defined as the:-
ability to know when information is needed (with regard to assignments and academic research),
ability to locate information (by using the library catalogue),
ability to evaluate information (by avoiding plagiarism),
and the ability to know how to use the information that has been found (upon which a student is able to meet required standards when writing an assignment or academic research)

Students living with disabilities

The library provides assistance to students with special needs.  Students with disabilities may have different academic challenges. As a result of this, Ekurhuleni Library will refer students to relevant departments especially to Advocacy and Resource Centre for Students With Disabilities ( ARCSWID)
