Abstract or Description

In fulfilment of the Travelling Librarian CILIP/ESU Award (2014) I visited Cape Town, Pretoria and Johannesburg in March 2015. The objective was to examine the role of librarians in facilitating forms of literacy and related ICT support, both on and off campus. I met with library professionals and academics from Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT), the University of Pretoria (UP), University of Johannesburg (UJ) and Wits University. I also met with representatives from non- governmental organisations (NGO’s) such as Project Literacy and independent educators who are undertaking stellar literacy drives in local communities and townships. I was there for just over two weeks and it was a packed programme.
