Law Library: Getting started

Alastair Kerr Law Library Resources

Setting up your "My Library Account" for access to RU library databases from off-campus

Off-campus users (staff and students) should note that they will be prompted for a staff/student barcode and PIN in order to access the library resources. See information below to register for your My Library Account - you must create your own PIN and you must be registered for the current year as a Library user.

For instructions on how to do this, please watch  My Library Account Tutorial Video

Click  “My Library Account” on the Main Library website, and then follow the instructions in the above video.

The report analyses perceptions and practice around housing demand and allocation in South Africa, looking at the policies and processes operating at national, provincial and local level. It attempts to unpack some of the complexity and provide recommendations to government departments at all levels.
