We have four types of digital catalogues for our library members which can be accessed on our website:

WEBOPAC
Web Online Public Access Catalogue is the online electronic library catalogue of the South African Library for the Blind which allows search for reading material through author, title or subject.

A user can log in and reserve a book online and it will be posted to them free of charge.

VIOPAC
Visually Impaired Online Public Access Catalogue is the online electronic library catalogue of the South African Library for the Blind which allows search for reading material through author, title or subject. (Screen reader friendly)

It does allow for search via author, title or subject but it is a much simpler way to search and is screen reader friendly.

OVERDRIVE
An audio library catalogue which is powered by ‘Overdrive’. Members can browse all titles, but download or listen online only to titles which have been purchased by the SALB for a loan period of two weeks.

BOOKSHARE

A (3rd party) digital catalogue of audio books available to SALB members at a discounted price. Library members have to pay a subscription fee annually direct to Bookshare, the SALB merely facilitates the discount available to its members.

Update on the new Library Management System:

The teams from Universal Knowledge Software (UKS) and SALB are busy finalising the outstanding modules and the system should be up and running tentatively by end October 2018.

In the meantime the Circulation Staff continue to manually select books based on your reading interests.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Please submit any inquiries to: audiolib@salb.org.za; braillelib@salb.org.za
