• Financial Crisis Impact and Management
• Regional Focus on the Financial Crisis
• Learning from the Financial Crisis
• The Financial Crisis as a Crisis of Capitalism

A selection of the best research on politics and the political economy can now be found in one place.

iFind Discover – our new library catalogue.

Our new library catalogue has been launched!
iFind Discover is a great new resource which can tell you what books and journals we have in the library, where they are and if they are available to borrow. Not only that it will also tell you whether the resource has an online version so you don’t even have to come to the library to use it!

Added features on the new catalogue include being able to add Tags to records where you can comment on how useful the book is, it will also recommend to you which other books could be useful for your subject and it can also search Trinity Saint David’s library, Swansea Metropolitan’s library and Swansea University’s library all at the same time!

Give iFind Discover a go, let us know what you think of it……..
