The University of Zululand Library is celebrating South African Library Week – 14th – 21st March 2015.
The theme “Connect @ your library” resonates with the belief that libraries connect people to each other, to knowledge and information,
to print and electronic resources, to technology and professional support.
Libraries are fast emerging as technologically enabled environments, which provide
individuals the opportunity to connect to:
• The Internet
• Databases, online learning & research tools
• Friends, families & colleagues via social networking sites
• Employment opportunities
• Digital libraries, which include institutional repositories
• Emerging mobile technologies such as tablets, e-Readers, smartphones, etc
It is therefore important for all to make the connection that libraries are desired one-stop,
socially inclusive spaces that enable one to Connect @ your library to family, friends,
technologies, information and the world.
