You are welcome to book a meeting with your Librarians as part of induction. They can help with a range of topics from databases available in your subject to how to use our reading list system and order books.

Reading Lists

Swansea University Library has a new Reading list policy which provides information on the creation, provision, and maintenance of Reading Lists for modules and programmes. Reading lists are a fundamental part of any programme, leading students to essential and recommended resources to support their learning and knowledge of a subject. It is also the means to identifying material that the Library should acquire and make accessible.
