Get Ready for Summer


Opening Hours

If you are planning a visit to the library this Summer, please check our campus vacation opening hours ahead of time.

Please note all USW libraries will be CLOSED on Bank Holiday Monday 26 August 2019.


Congratulations to all our graduates! Don't forget to return any outstanding items and clear your library account before you embark on the next exciting phase of your journey. We wish you every success for the future.

Book loans

Remember to return any items you no longer need
No recall fines will be charged for the vacation period.

Autorenewal will be in place during the vacation. Recalled items will need to be returned at the start of the new term. 

Please check your Library Account for confirmation of your return due dates.


If you're planning to study over the Summer and have forgotten to pick up those titles you wanted, don't forget to check if they're available online via FINDit.

BoB - TV and Radio Online

Don't forget you have access to loads of films, documentaries, TV and radio broadcasts available via BoB - for pleasure as well as study!

Using other libraries

The SCONUL Vacation Scheme allows you reference access to participating university libraries around the UK, and you can also potentially join the SCONUL Access Scheme which allows reciprocal borrowing.

Help and support

You can book an appointment with your Faculty Librarian, or contact us via our online Chat Service or email us a question at

Have a great Summer!
