Ask a librarian

Welcome to the University of the Witwatersrand's electronic information service!

Please note: this web-based reference service is available only to registered students and staff of the University of Witwatersrand.

Submit your query by completing our online question form. Please fill in this form as completely as possible to ensure a helpful response from our librarians.

For now, this facility is for subject reference queries. Questions should be concerned with your studies, research projects, finding information and learning about accessing and using the Library resources...

Our subject/information librarians will do their best to respond within 3 working days. We cannot give a detailed and comprehensive answer to all questions, but we will refer you to specific subject reference sources from literature, electronic databases and other reference resources. If we cannot source an answer from the universities expertise resources, we will refer your query to one of our library partners.
