Would you like to borrow books from other libraries?

If you are a student or member of staff at Swansea Met, did you know that you have access to other libraries - local, regional and even national, through two amazing schemes that we are part of?

If you are interested in using other libraries in the South West and Mid Wales region, the ‘Libraries Together’ scheme is perfect for you! It is a collaborative venture via SWAMP (South West and Mid Wales Libraries Partnership) and is open to anyone. As a Libraries Together member, you can borrow books from the public, university and college libraries within this area, for free!

If, on the other hand you would like to use other university libraries, SCONUL Access is your scheme! This scheme is also free, but is targeted mainly at part-time students, post-graduate students and members of staff. SCONUL Access covers most of the university libraries in the UK and Ireland – take a look at their website if you would like to find out more...

SCONUL Access is particularly useful for students who study in Swansea during term-time, but live elsewhere within the UK and return home during vacations.

So if you would like more information about either scheme or would like to sign up to join, please do contact your subject librarian or myself at the Griffith Library!
