Finding Print at WHSL

Remember we also have print journals that can be found on the catalogue.

Most journals at WHSL are now only available electronically. However, some of the older journals are only available in print. In order to find out if WHSL has a journal, first check for it by using the e-journal finder in the box above. However, if the journal you want is not available elctronically, then check the catalogue for print holdings. Make sure that you change the drop down menu from Keyword to Journal Title before searching.

Note the LOCATION of the title you want. The Witwatersrand Health Sciences Library (location code WHSL) is at the Medical School on the entry level (Level 4) on the Parktown Campus. 

Then note the SHELF NUMBER of the journal. This is the "address" at which the journal is physically housed on the shelves. Note: this location number may be different in different libraries, depending on which classification system is used.

Finally, note the STATUS of the volume and/or issue you want. The status may be ISSUED (ie. it has been taken out, and the date on which it is due to be returned should be reflected as DUE) or NOT ISSUED (ie. it should be on the shelf).

It's not at Wits....

If the journal article you require is not available either in print or in electronic format at any of Wits Libraries, and you are a post-graduate student, or a member of staff, you may request a copy from another library in South Africa from Inter-Library Loans (ILL). You will be asked to provide your student information and your Library PIN. Please enter as much detail as possible, and submit. You will be contacted once the article arrives if you provide a phone number at which you can be reached during office hours. You may enter this in the column that asks for an amount that you are willing to pay for the article. Please note: there is a nominal charge for all ILLs, depending on from where the article is obtained.
