If you’ve just started at Swansea University, or just started back for a new year, Welcome! My name is Abigail, formerly a public librarian in Ceredigion, now a happy member of the Bay Library team. I’m new to Swansea myself and I know from experience it takes some time to settle in. There are lots of changes and new things to see at Bay Campus but the best place to start your online exploring is My Uni Hub. From this page you’ll be able to sign into a whole host of Swansea University services including your email, Blackboard and, most importantly to us at the Bay Library, IFind, the library catalogue.
IFind is your key to getting the most from the wealth of library and information resources offered by Swansea University. IFind enables you to search and browse the University’s research and resources. You can request and reserve a book or journal from any of our University libraries, access online ebooks and journals and browse the lists of other research and information sources available. IFind is also your key to managing your library account, preventing unwanted library fines, keeping track of the resources you have borrowed, renewing and reserving items you wish to use. Just visit the link via My Uni Hub or login to IFind and discover a world of information.
Down at Bay Library we have a whole host of Business and Management and Engineering resources on our shelves and ready for you to use. We are a specialist library for these subject areas however, as with all Swansea University Libraries, you are able to request any title held at any of our University libraries at Swansea using IFind and collect it from us at Bay. You can also return loans from other Swansea University libraries to us and we will send it safely back to its home.
We also have very friendly and welcoming staff who are here to help you get what you what however we can. Email the Bay Library team your questions and queries. Contact your subject librarians for specialist help and advice (School of Management and Engineeering). The library is staffed from 8am to 12pm. If you prefer to serve yourself, the library building is open 24hrs a day and self-issue and return machines are able to let you loan and return books any time you wish.
It’s really a special place to work and visit so do come and say hello.
