I have found the Oasis of Knowledge: UNISA’s Online Library

without comments

As a scholar, it is critical to have access to knowledge.  And while tools like Zotero, are excellent at organizing the knowledge, and search engines such as Google Scholar and the Microsoft Academic Search make it easy to find scholarly knowledge, most scholarly works are generally inaccessible to the public, without paying fairly high fees. (One scholarly paper can often cost as much as buying a book).  But I have just discovered the UNISA Library, which claims to be Africa’s largest academic library, and I believe it.  Even when I went to U.S. universities, including Nova Southeastern University, I did not have as much access to journals as I now have.  So this is one more reason, why if a person is truly going to college for knowledge, UNISA offers amazing value.
