Information Services

As a renowned provider of original African Journal and South African Legal content, we continuously source and make available new online content pertaining to, or originating from Africa.

With new content and information made available as it is published, and an archive of electronic journals dating back over a century, users are able to access cross-referenced material from the convenience of their desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. Comprised of a massive database of bibliographic and citation references, news archives and a growing collection of more than 500 aggregated premier African journals and publications, it is one of the largest and most easily accessible collections of its kind today. In order to ensure more effective visibility of this unique African content collection, references and metadata are also incorporated into the indexes of the major search engines and distributed to aggregators worldwide.

Our extensive legal content collection is also widely used by libraries, individuals and public and private organisations. With almost immediate access to the latest Bills and legislation, as well as historical and archived information, our legal content collection empowers those who require it with the critical, up-to-date information they need to ensure compliance and make sound business decisions in South Africa’s fast-paced legislative landscape.
