Reciprocal Agreements

  • Our Library have collaborated both regionally and nationally in order to offer reciprocal borrowing privileges to our research students. Our regional collaboration, called CHELiN, enables our researchers to request a referral letter to use any of our partner institutions at Stellenbosch, UCT or CPUT.
  • Our national collaboration, CHELSA, enables our distance students, or researchers traveling beyond the Western Cape region, to request a referral letter to use the facilities of the institutions nationwide for example UNISA, Wits or Nelson Mandela.
  • It is important to note that you will be limited to two institutions and you will need to be in good standing with our Library regulations.
Please contact Mr Trevor Fortune @ for a referral letter.
