Archives and Public Culture Research Initiative responds to the fire at UCT
The APC has received countless enquiries from concerned and shocked researchers. This has prompted us to set up a dedicated space on our website, where we can collate the latest updates on the destruction, and hopefully survival, of the African Studies collection and other sections of the UCT's Special Collections Library.
We are doing this initially as an interim measure, but please keep in mind that we are not able to speak for the Library or respond on Library issues. We simply wish to keep the archive and history community abreast of whatever we can. Our focus and efforts may in due course be superseded by whatever the Library sets up.
