The GSB Library has a small but dedicated team of professional librarians who work closely the faculty, staff and students of the GSB:

Connecting users with the most relevant resources available to them within the GSB Library, at UCT Libraries, or in the larger research world:

  • Access to a wide range of electronic resources - databases, journal articles and ebooks
  • A collection of print books, specialising in the field of business and management
  • Past GSB MCom/MPhil/PhD dissertations which are available at OpenUCT.
  • Inter-library loan facilities
  • Reciprocal agreements with other South African Business School libraries

Supporting the research and information needs of the GSB community through:

  • Hands-on training sessions on accessing resources - both electronic and physical
  • Reinforcing academic integrity through in-depth sessions on plagiarism and the steps to avoid it
  • Encouraging the use of citation managers to facilitate good and accurate referencing techniques
  • Being available and accessible to the students, face to face, via e-mail or telephonically providing a high level of service regardless of the students' physical location.

By being embedded with each programme the GSB offers, the Librarians have a high level of understanding the needs of the students and the requirements of the academic staff which allows the skills of the librarians to underpin all academic activity.
