Access to other libraries

The University of South Wales Libraries are members of a number of co-operative schemes that enable its members to use the facilities of other higher education libraries in the United Kingdom.

Details of these schemes are outlined below.

Other library catalogues

You can also access a range of Welsh and National library catalogues.


This is a borrowing scheme which has been set up between participating public, further and higher education libraries. Any USW student is able to join the scheme via their local public library, as long as that library is a participating member of Books4U.

You are able to request 2 books from any of the libraries listed, including USW, which would then be collected from, and returned to, your public library.
