UWC Library First-Year Experience (FYE) aims to help you with your transition to university. This page contains information about your Orientation Programme for this year. You will find useful videos and online guides to assist you in using the library’s facilities and services
The Orientation takes one hour. You’ll meet in the Library Auditorium (opposite EMS building). The schedule of these sessions is arranged by the Library with Faculty Peer Facilitators.
Tweet us on @UWCLibrary to tell us what you think – (the tour, the people, the vibe).
Prizes for the most creative/useful/catchy tweets!
Ask a Librarian – Get real-time assistance via Chat (from 08:30 until midnight, Monday to Friday) or post your question into the service. The Ask a Librarian chat service opens up everytime you visit the Library website.
