History not only tells us where we come from, it also contains valuable lessons. Thus, the process of preserving history through the archive is vitally important. Recognising this, UCT recently launched Humanitec, which saw the digitisation of more than 14 000 objects from the 14 archival collections housed at UCT Libraries. Here is a snapshot of what is available through Humanitec, and in some of these collections.
UCT Libraries Special Collections would like to pay tribute to Basil Breakey, who passed away on 9 September.
UCT remembers the many women – mothers, teachers, workers, preachers, marchers, martyrs – who have given their time and their lives fighting for a more free society.
