Welcome to our official UWTSD Swansea Library Blog! We’ll be using it to post news and information about our resources and services, to help you make the most of our campus libraries and online library e-resources. We also welcome your comments & feedback!
Well, this is our penultimate entry in the UWTSD library
A-Z...and it’s a double whammy! We’re focusing on letters V and W this week...
V is for:
Value – Your UWTSD
libraries can save you a huge amount of money, we’ve done the maths! An average
academic textbook costs somewhere in the region of £45...multiply that by 15 (the number of books an undergraduate
student can borrow at any one time) and that amounts to £675 worth of books...if you borrowed just 15 books per term, that equals
£2025 per year...do that for the
duration of your 3 year degree course and that’s £6075 that we’ve saved you! That’s without all the journals,
newspapers and e-books that we give you free access to...and then there’s the
free WiFi...the expert advice etc...you can’t afford NOT to use the library!
WiFi – All our
libraries are WiFi hotspots, so bring along your laptops, tablets and
smartphones and you’ll have wireless internet access, completely free of charge!
All you need to know is your UWTSD student ID and password. If you have any
problems connecting to the WiFi network we have plenty of IT staff available to
Website – Our library website contains all the information you need to know about the library, from
opening hours and contact details, to subject guides and inter-library loans.
Plus, it acts as a portal to all the electronic content in our Online Library,
such as; ebooks, ejournals, newspapers and market reports. So, add the library
website to your bookmarks/favourites...you’ll be glad you did!
