April 2014 theses/dissertations available on SUNScholar

On behalf of SUNScholar, we would like to congratulate all April 2014 graduates with graduating. Your thesis is now online available from SUNScholar, the digital open access research repository of Stellenbosch University. During the past submission period, 586 theses/dissertations were submitted, which will now be digitally preserved for years to come.

 

Promote your own research!

To access your thesis/dissertation, please conduct an Author search by typing in your surname. Provided that no embargo applies, the thesis/dissertation will be open for all to access, to cite and to build new research on. Also create links from your CV or personal web profile to the SUNScholar URL, and share with your network via social media (Google+, facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc.). Google will also soon start indexing all to increase the visibility of SU research output. The statistics functionality within SUNScholar allows you to see how many times your thesis has been accessed and used.

 

Metadata Editors will now start moving the new submissions to departmental collections.

Let our children read!

During Library Week, 17 – 21 March 2014 and the week thereafter, the Library and Information Service will try to collect as many children’s books and books for young readers as possible in answering a NEK nomination.

​Please help us by placing your donation of picture books or children’s books in Afrikaans or English in the “Bookbins” available in the JS Gericke Library and branch libraries.

The two institutions which will benefit from our challenge are the Babin pre-primary school group and Rietenbosch Primary in Cloetesville. Both these schools have small libraries which rely entirely on donations for survival.
