Introducing AtoM@UCT, the recently launched on-line gateway to the primary source collections held by UCT Libraries. AtoM stands for “AccesstoMemory”, an open source, web-based, standards compliant (ISAD-G, DACS, RAD, EAD/EAC, DC etc.) archival management system that is rapidly becoming the gold standard in open source archival description software.
UCT Libraries Special Collections has launched a valuable digital archive on the ‡Khomani San of the southern Kalahari, which is made up of much of the material gathered for their successful land claim in 1999. It includes irreplaceable audio material of the N|uu language, once thought lost.
We would like to remind our users to carry your UCT ID card with you at all times. All library patrons are required to carry their UCT ID cards as the Libraries' regulations might require you to present it. Please help us to ensure our Libraries are used in a responsible manner.
