  • Os bydd gennych lyfrau neu gyfnodolion ar fenthyg dros yr haf, bydd y rhain yn parhau i adnewyddu’n awtomatig ac ni fydd angen i chi boeni amdanynt oni bai fod rhywun arall yn gofyn i’w benthyg. Os bydd hyn yn digwydd, byddwch yn derbyn e-bost yn gofyn i chi ddychwelyd yr eitem(au) o fewn 14 diwrnod. Os ydych yn bwriadu cadw eitemau dros yr haf, gwnewch yn siŵr eich bod yn gwirio eich cyfrif e-bost Prifysgol yn rheolaidd.

  • Gofynnir i chi ddychwelyd gliniaduron sydd dal ar fenthyg yn brydlon i’r cypyrddau clo hunanwasanaeth yn y Llyfrgell o ble fenthycoch chi nhw. Ni fydd y rhain yn adnewyddu’n awtomatig a chodir dirwy o £10.00 y dydd.

  • Os oes gennych unrhyw bryderon am ddychwelyd eitemau, rhowch wybod i’r tîm Gwasanaethau Cwsmeriaid ar unwaith. Gallwch ddychwelyd llyfrau i ni trwy’r post, os oes angen. Ewch i dudalennau gwe y Llyfrgell am fanylion cyswllt a chyfeiriadau post.

Os ydych yn defnyddio Llyfrgelloedd Prifysgol Abertawe dros yr Haf:

  • O 1 Mehefin tan 29 Awst, bydd oriau agor  yr haf yn Llyfrgelloedd Parc Singleton a’r Bae o 8am tan hanner nos, ond bydd Llyfrgell Parc Singleton yn cau am 6pm ar ddydd Iau, 2 Mehefin ar gyfer Dawns yr Haf.

  • O 3 Mehefin, bydd Llyfrgelloedd Parc Singleton a’r Bae ar agor o 8am tan hanner nos saith niwrnod yr wythnos.

  • Cewch hyd i’r wybodaeth ddiweddaraf am oriau agor ein holl lyfrgelloedd ar ein tudalennau gwe.

  • Bydd benthyciadau hunanwasanaeth gliniaduron am bythefnos yn parhau i fod ar gael o Lyfrgelloedd y Bae a Pharc Singleton. Nid oes modd adnewyddu’r rhain ac mae’n rhaid eu dychwelyd i’r cwpwrdd clo o ble daethon nhw erbyn y dyddiad dychwelyd.
  • Bydd modd i chi gysylltu â Llyfrgellwyr Pynciol trwy sgwrsio ar-lein neu gellir cael apwyntiadau unigol. Ceir manylion llawn yng Nghanllawiau’r Llyfrgell.

Os oes gennych unrhyw gwestiynau neu bryderon, cysylltwch â’r Tîm Gwasanaethau Cwsmeriaid.

Byddwn yn gwneud gwelliannau i adeilad a mannau astudio Llyfrgell Parc Singleton dros yr haf, ac ymddiheurwn o flaen llaw am unrhyw darfu a diolchwn i chi am eich amynedd a dealltwriaeth wrth i ni gwblhau’r gwaith.

Croesawn eich adborth ac awgrymiadau am sut gallwn wella a byddwn yn ddiolchgar pe byddech yn cysylltu â Gwasanaethau Cwsmeriaid i’w rhannu.

Global Accessibility Awareness Day logo

Today is Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). It’s a day to raise awareness of digital inclusion and the barriers faced by many disabled people. There are simple changes we can all make to things more accessible for everyone. Read Sofie O’Shea’s post on the Library Document Supply Services’ review of their webpages to make them more accessible. Are there changes you could make to be more inclusive?  Here are a few examples:

  • Add alt text to describe any images you use (this includes photos and GIFs shared on social media)
  • Ensure your videos have accurate captions
  • Make your text legible, e.g. for documents use a minimum 12 point type face and a sans-serif font such as Arial; use text colours that have a high contrast to the background
  • Use the Accessibility Checker to check your Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook files for accessibility issues so you can make improvements

Swansea University staff can check the guidance and advice collated by Swansea Academy for Inclusivity and Learner Support (SAILS) to ensure learning material is accessible to more people.

Logo Diwrnod Ymwybyddiaeth Hygyrchedd Byd-eang

Mae heddiw yn Ddiwrnod Ymwybyddiaeth Hygyrchedd Byd-eang (GAAD). Mae’n ddiwrnod i gynyddu ymwybyddiaeth am gynhwysiant digidol a’r rhwystrau y mae nifer o bobl anabl yn eu hwynebu. Trwy newidiadau syml, gallwn ni wneud pethau yn fwy hygyrch i bawb. Darllenwch bostiad Sofie O’Shea ar adolygiad Gwasanaethau Cyflenwi Dogfennau’r Llyfrgell o’u tudalennau gwe er mwyn eu gwneud yn fwy hygyrch. Allech chi wneud newidiadau er mwyn bod yn fwy cynhwysol? Dyma rai enghreifftiau:

  • Ychwanegwch destun amgen i ddisgrifio delweddau rydych chi’n eu defnyddio (mae hyn yn cynnwys ffotograffau a ffeiliau GIF a rennir ar gyfryngau cymdeithasol)
  • Sicrhewch fod capsiynau eich fideos yn gywir 
  • Sicrhewch fod eich testun yn ddarllenadwy e.e. defnyddiwch o leiaf faint testun12 pwynt a ffont sans-serif megis Arial; defnyddiwch liwiau testun sy’n gwrthgyferbynnu’n dda â’r cefndir
  • Defnyddiwch Accessibility Checker i wirio eich ffeiliau Word, PowerPoint, Excel ac Outlook rhag ofn bod materion hygyrchedd y gallech chi eu gwella

Gall staff Prifysgol Abertawe wirio’r arweiniad a’r cyngor a gasglwyd gan Academi Cynwysoldeb a Llwyddiant Dysgwyr Abertawe (SAILS) i sicrhau bod deunydd dysgu yn hygyrch i ragor o bobl.
