The Mahikeng library had the pleasure to participate in the orientation of first-year students from the 23 – 24 January. The aim of the orientation was to give brief and important information to the new students about the NWU LIS and its code of conduct. It was inspiring to see the library filled to capacity by enthusiastic future leaders. Over 200 students were received. The library staff members did an outstanding job of welcoming the students and introducing them to all the different sections, and how the students will be using the library services throughout their studies at NWU. The tour sessions for students were divided into separate groups. On the first part of orientation, Library Management welcomed and congratulated students for choosing the NWU. They emphasised the importance of the library in the academic and learning process of any student’s journey.
