Bay Library – your questions answered

Last week, we held some library induction sessions for School of Management students. Thanks to all of you who turned up –it was good to meet you! Thanks too to those of you who asked us questions via Slido, and to those who took part in the polls when we asked you questions. Click on the image below to see the interaction statistics for the week’s sessions.

The stats also show the most popular questions which were asked last week, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to answer these again on the blog for anyone who missed it last week. Here they are:

  • If I fall asleep in the library will you kick me out?

If you fall asleep in the library, a member of staff will wake you up and suggest you go home to get some rest if you can’t stay awake! Bay Library is open 24/7, but the library space is for studying, reading and relaxing, not for catching up on your sleep, please.

  • I like Harry Potter, are there any Harry Potter books?

We do have some Harry Potter books, but they’re written in German! (They’re for the language students at Singleton Park Campus.) Singleton Park Library does have a range of fiction that you might like to read, and Bay Library has a Book Swap in the self-service café that we encourage you to use, but for a bigger range of fiction which does include the Harry Potter books, why not join Swansea public libraries?

  • Big up Giles

A shout out here to one of our subject librarians, Giles Lloyd-Brown! You can find contact details for Giles and the rest of the team on the front page of our Library Guide for School of Management.

  • Can you bring takeaways in the library?

You can, but please eat them in the self-service café area. Drinks and cold food are allowed in the main study areas of the library, but please take hot food to the café.

  • Will I get a follow back on Twitter?

Maybe! You can follow the School of Management library account at @SUBusLib.

If you missed your library induction last week, you’ll find the presentation, handout and a lecture recording on the New Students tab of our Library Guide. If you have any questions at any time, please come to the library or email us at buslib@swansea.ac.uk.
