Social Development: Government Information: Home

A guide to finding government information for Social Development students.

About this Department

The Government Publications Department houses a centralised collection of government publications, including policy, legislation, statistics, public finance, parliamentary debates, government gazettes and planning publications. We collect publications from many African countries as well as regional inter-governmental organisations and some international governmental organisations.

We provide a specialised information service and can help you find publications and information in a wide range of electronic and print sources on a variety of topics.

Our facilities consist of seating for 12 to 16 people at shared large tables, 6 computers, a photocopier/printer and 8 power points for laptops.

We collect publications from the shelves for you. You may borrow loan copies of publications. Because government publications are primary sources one copy of each publication must stay in the library at all times. 

You may use government publications in the main part of the Library when we are closed, except for old material.
