UCT Libraries goes cashless

From January 2016, UCT Libraries has decided to go cashless, and the reasons are three-fold:

to reduce the costs of handling cash across all the libraries (money will be saved on cash collection fees, bank charges and staff resources); to reduce the infrastructure requirements for cash handling and storage and; to reduce the potential physical risk to staff and students.

The move to a cashless environment will make our financial operations more efficient and cost effective.

Reflections on history

History not only tells us where we come from, it also contains valuable lessons. Thus, the process of preserving history through the archive is vitally important. Recognising this, UCT recently launched Humanitec, which saw the digitisation of more than 14 000 objects from the 14 archival collections housed at UCT Libraries. Here is a snapshot of what is available through Humanitec, and in some of these collections.
