Libraries

Library Services : BooksPLUS…

The libraries are at the heart of college life. We have fully equipped libraries in four of our colleges in Afan, Brecon, Neath and Newtown.  In each location you’ll find the information, equipment, support and guidance you need to help you to succeed in your studies.

 

Need information? We’ve got it!  In our libraries you’ll find 30,000+ books and hundreds of DVDs, magazines and newspapers.  Online we have 1,000+ e-books, video streaming services and loads of specialist resources that you won’t find just by using Google, all available 24/7.

Get help and advice. In each college library we have a team of specialists who can help you to maximise your potential and progress with your studies.   Library staff provide one to one support, or work with small groups and whole classes, helping with research projects and assignments.  The team are experts at finding information and are happy to help, just ask! Visit us to study in a relaxed and welcoming environment.    Each library offers you a place to go where you can research, revise and complete assignments. There’s space for you to work in a group with friends or, if peace and quiet is what you prefer, each library has a quiet study room where you can work without distractions.

We’ve got computers: lots of them! Our libraries are all equipped with PCs, laptops and iPads.  Free and secure wi-fi is provided across our college sites if you prefer to use your own mobile device. In Afan and Neath Colleges, PCs can be reserved in advance so you’re always guaranteed access when you need it.
