What is a Libguide?

A LibGuide was created by a Faculty Librarian to put together all types of information about a specific subject. For instance, you will find all the relevant information for Law on the Law LibGuide. This includes databases, cases and acts, journals and contact information. Thus a one-stop site.

Links & Files

I need access to the Library tab on eFundi to download EndNote.

Please email the Library staff under the Ask Us tab on the EndNote LibGuide to give you access to eFundi. 

Provide your name, surname and university number with the request.
