If you are going on placement at an NHS hospital, you are welcome to use the Library facilities there. There are books and journals for you to consult and, in some libraries you may be able to access the Internet. However, please remember that the Librarians at these libraries have many clients to serve. If you need help searching for information, interlibrary loans, or any special service regarding your class work, please consult your Swansea University Librarians first.
As a Swansea University student you can benefit from the LibraryPlus service. The LibraryPlus service is our way to bring the Library to your doorstep. We can photocopy or scan journal articles, post books, order items in advance for collection etc. Full details can be found on our LibraryPlus web pages.
