To access the research databases off campus you will need to authenticate yourself by entering your:

name, staff/student barcode and library pin.

You may request a library pin from User Access Services, Level 1. Once set up access is granted immediately.

Voice: +27-(0)46-603-8463
Loans enquiries:

Alternatively see information on Off-campus access, and set up your own library pin.

You also need a library pin to access My Library Account, where you can manage your library record, renew items on loan, review your reading history etc.
