Welcome

Welcome to the Unisa Rustenburg Regional Library

The Rustenburg Regional Library has about 36 computers available for students to access the library catalogue and also request books from the main library.It is important for students to specify the requested item to be couriered to the specific library.

In addition the library website also has various electronic databases and e-books for your information needs.

The reference section has been set aside for students to have access to prescribed books that can be used for 2 hours inside the library.

We encourage students to use the RFID machine which is the self-checkin and return machine, situated inside the library and at the entrance of the campus in Rustenburg.

The library has also partnered with various public libraries to allow students in those communities to have access to Unisa library resources. Students are also allowed to collect and return books that were requested from the main library in Pretoria, to those public libraries.

You can visit this site often to see the latest resources and other exciting information and activities.

JSTOR is a growing digital library

JSTOR is a growing digital library that includes multiple types and formats of content. In 2021 we launched a project to bring Artstor to JSTOR, to create a robust platform for discovering and working with both text and images. Throughout 2021 and into 2022, images from Artstor collections are being added to JSTOR, and JSTOR platform features and functionality are evolving to support work with multiple formats of research materials
