Literature Search Service

This service is delivered by the Information Search Librarians Team to Unisa staff and students.

You can request a literature search from us on a specific research topic. To compile the literature search a number of electronic databases are consulted to provide you with an overview of the literature written on your topic. The search results will include citationsabstracts, and links to full-text articles where available.

The literature list provides a helpful starting point for your research. Your next step is to work through the literature search results and identify relevant material that you would like to download or to request from the Unisa Library.
