DUT Library Services during the Lockdown

Body

Dear Students

 

Please take note of the information below regarding DUT Library Services during the Lockdown:

 

1.     Contact a Librarian  

 

The DUT Library continues to provide support to our library users during this period. We have a team of library staff who are available online to support you with your academic and research needs.

You can request support by using the Ask a Librarian (LIVE CHAT) feature on the library website. This support tool allows you to chat to a Librarian on duty. This service will run from 08h00 – 16h00, Monday to Friday. Limited monitoring of this service will take place over the weekends and the upcoming public holidays.

Click here to go to LIVE CHAT

If you experience problems connecting to LIVE CHAT, you can also send your library queries to dutlibrary@dut.ac.za

 

2.     Remember, you have access to E-databases, E-journals and E-books online


Access to DUT Library’s vast electronic resources is still available from the library website:
https://library.dut.ac.za or

http://dut.summon.serialssolutions.com/#!/advanced.


You will be asked to log in using your DUT credentials. If you need help logging in, go to
https://library.dut.ac.za/remote-access-faqs/

or send an email to dutlibrary@dut.ac.za

3.     Books out on loan:

All books that were due from the 17th March have been extended until the 20th April 2020, so you will not accrue any fines in this period.

4.     Publishers’ and Universities’ open access to content

Some publishers and organisations have made their content freely available to support academics and researchers. A full list of this content is available on the library website:

5.     Dealing with fake news

The library is developing a library guide on fake news. Please find information on fake news on the library website.

The International Federation of Libraries and Institutions (IFLA) provides a useful guideline for spotting fake news: https://www.ifla.org/publications/node/11174
