The study by Nora Buchanan and Christine Stilwell documents the development of the two libraries of the University of Natal from 1910 to 2003. They used the historical research method for the collection and analysis of data. This study, by investigating the historical record of the University of Natal Libraries, is not only a revelation of the past but also assisted in identifying possible future trends in academic librarianship in South Africa, particularly as far as the management of multi-centred libraries is concerned.
