Libraries by any other name
Oh, those Afrikaaners, with their hybrid Dutch-English and what not. I say potato, they say Biblioteek.Actually, this is where I gave my training presentation in Pretoria. It is the campus of UNISA (University of South Africa), which I believe is the largest university in South Africa. It is also where Nelson Mandela got his law degree from jail via correspondence. They have a very progressive history of offering education to all races from as early as 1920 (for this part of the world, that is borderline revolutionary). Granted, any race besides Caucasians couldn’t do much with that education.
That is not necessarily UNISA‘s fault, though. It was an interesting place.
