This week at the African Studies Toolbox, we’d like to share this call for help retrieving rare documents for the African Studies Library at the University of Cape Town:
Among the sites of historical significance that have been destroyed by the fire at the University of Cape Town on April 18th 2021 is the Jagger Library. The library houses rare and specialist collections, such as the important African Studies collections.
“Academics and other researchers around the world who have worked in these special collections and have taken photocopies or mobile phone images of documents may be able to contribute these to help recover some of the lost records. Please fill in the form one time for each document you have. The results will be collated by Dr Maha Rafi Atal, Copenhagen Business School, and passed to UCT.”
