Chancellor Oppenheimer Library Audio Tour

Want to get to know your library better? Why not take yourself on a tour! UCT Libraries’ self-guided audio/SASL tour is designed to help you familiarise yourself with the many different spaces and services at your disposal in the Chancellor Oppenheimer Library. 

Best of all, it’s available from the convenience of your mobile device, in four official languages: English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa and South African Sign Language (SASL). Simply scan the QR code in the Library’s foyer at Stop 1 or at the stop of your choice, plug in your headphones and hit play on the audio file. It will only take you about 15 minutes. You can even read along with the tour transcripts that are available from the very same webpage. 

This tour can be experienced in any order and is available at any time of year. Wander around during the holidays, start in the basement, or start in Hlanganani, you’re in complete control!

However, if you need assistance, please feel free to ask for help at the Vincent Kolbe Knowledge Commons information desk. Have fun and discover your library at your own pace.
