Our mission

  • Agility, Excellence and Empowerment.

The University of Johannesburg Library is a modern, client friendly facility and we are proud of the quality of the spaces and services available to all our stakeholders.

The Library consists of five libraries on four campuses including the Central Management and Technical Support Unit on the Auckland Park Kingsway Campus (APK).

The Library Events Programme

In 2013, the UJ Library launched a weekly events programme that rapidly became one of its most important and visible services to the UJ community.

The aim of the events is to provide a stimulating environment for debate and engagement with topical issues to students, staff and external stakeholders.

The Library events programme is grounded in the belief that the library is the ideal environment for students to become familiar with the issues and challenges facing society. It also provides the platform and opportunity to engage with some of the best authors, community leaders and opinion formers of our day.
