Rhodes University: Margaret Smith Library (SAIAB) The library grew from a diverse collection of printed material: books; reprints; journals; maps; antiquarian works, and a large collection of unpublished ‘grey literature’, put together by Margaret and JLB Smith in the years following WWII. These resources supported their own research on the marine fishes of southern Africa, and formed the nucleus of a library for the then Department of Ichthyology at Rhodes University. Now housed at SAIAB, the library continues to be a valuable national and international resource for the study of both marine and freshwater fishes, fisheries, and aquaculture. There is a strong focus on Africa. SAIAB is a Research Facility of the National Research Foundation.
