Despite the comprehensive collection of online journals, e-books, datasets and print items you can access through the library, you may find that you’re not able to find what you’re looking for. If this happens don’t despair Document Supply Services are here to help.
You can use our inter-library loan request service to borrow or obtain a copy of an item from another library. Document Supply Services will scour the seven kingdoms to obtain journal articles, books, theses and conference papers from local, national and international libraries.
All staff and registered students of Swansea University can use the inter-library loan service. Making a request will incur a charge for your department and only members of academic staff are permitted to authorise requests. Alternatively, you can make a personal payment for an inter-library loan. A charge will be added to your library account when the item arrives.
You can use the COPAC to search for items which are held at a number of other libraries. The COPAC allows you to search the catalogues of over 90 libraries at once, including the UK national libraries, University libraries, and specialist libraries.
“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
