Prescribed and Recommended Textbooks data required for the first Semester 2020

Posted on August 27, 2019

The database for submissions of prescribed and recommended books for the first semester of 2020 is now open till 20 September 2019.

Access the database here:


Prescribed titles are books that students need to buy therefore this information will be sent to the bookshops, library and other relevant parties.

Recommended titles will not be sent to the bookshops, however, the library will keep a copy.  

It is strongly recommended that e-books should be considered and prescribed as more students can read an e-book simultaneously in some circumstances. It should be done in line with the University of Pretoria and the Department of Library services' e-strategy.

Remember to update all ISBN’s, edition and/or year of publishing to the newest. The publisher is of utmost importance to us as well, therefore, please complete the template in full. If your department has a textbook administrator make sure that the necessary info reaches the person well in time before 20 September. Late submissions run the risk of not being available in the bookshops in time.

Please note that Study Guides are not being used to obtain books – only the completed list.
