External Visitors

The South Wales Miners' Library has an Open to All policy, you may use the library for reference use only - there's a warm welcome for everyone.

Book Boxes

Book Boxes are provided by the Miners’ Library to support students on the Part time degree.  Books are selected from the reading lists supplied by tutors, together with additional material if required.  They are delivered to the venue and stay there until the end of the academic year.  Students can pick books from the box to supplement other material which has proved invaluable, especially for those studying at a distance.

There are a few guidelines which will ensure that the books are used by all students.

  • Please write your name, student number and date next to the correct book barcode.
  • When returning the book sign and date to show that you have returned the item.
  • Please return books after use to enable other students to use them.
  • At the end of term boxes will be collected, any books still signed out will need to be returned promptly direct to the library, students will be contacted.
  • If students need to keep books for longer they need to inform Library staff and they can then be issued to their personal accounts.
  • Any books which are not returned will incur charges.

If you have any queries about the Book Boxes please contact the Miners’ Library.
