Students Having a Say in the Library’s Collection

We have collaborated with Swansea University Library to ask students to suggest titles which should be added to the Library which reflect decolonisation, diversity, wellbeing, and welfare.  Twenty-seven of the suggested titles were available for purchase as e-books from the Library’s budget.  Paper copies of these, and an additional number of titles which were not available electronically, were purchased by the Students’ Union for placement in the Libraries in both Singleton and Bay campuses.  The Library is happy to announce that it will do further consultation with students in the upcoming academic year to identify further titles in this area.

This has been a part of an ongoing project to diversity our library collection.  You can find more information at our Diversifying Library Collections pages

Myfyrwyr yn dweud eu dweud ar gasgliad ein Llyfrgell

Undeb y Myfyrwyr gydag Cydweithredodd Llyfrgell Prifysgol Abertawe  i ofyn i fyfyrwyr awgrymu teitlau y dylent gael eu hychwanegu at y Llyfrgell sy’n adlewyrchu dadwladychu, amrywiaeth, llesiant, a lles. Roedd 27 o’r teitlau a awgrymwyd ar gael i’w prynu o gyllideb y Llyfrgell ar ffurf e-lyfrau. Prynwyd copïau papur o’r rhain a nifer ychwanegol o deitlau nad oeddent ar gael yn electronig gan Undeb y Myfyrwyr i’w cadw yn y Llyfrgelloedd ar Gampws Parc Singleton ac ar Gampws y Bae. Mae’n bleser gan y Llyfrgell gyhoeddi y bydd yn cynnal ymgynghoriad pellach â myfyrwyr yn ystod y flwyddyn academaidd nesaf i adnabod mwy o deitlau yn y maes hwn. 

Mae hyn wedi bod yn rhan o brosiect parhaus i sicrhau amrywiaeth yn ein casgliad y Llyfrgell. Cewch ragor o wybodaeth ar ein tudalennau Amrywio Casgliadau’r Llyfrgell.  

Teitlau E-lyfrau sydd bellach ar gael trwy gatalog y Llyfrgell:
