Services for Partner Students

Services for students based at collaborative partner institutions

Information about the Library services available to students is provided by the institution at which they are studying. However, in line with the University's commitment to collaborative partnerships, the University Library offers a range of services to Higher Education students registered on University programmes at partner institutions.

This provision is designed to supplement the main services provided by the libraries at the partner institutions.

Access to UWTSD Libraries

It is recognised that some students based at partner institutions, particularly those who live geographically close to the University, may want to use University Library material for background information. This can be done free of charge, via the Libraries Together reciprocal borrowing scheme.

Inter-Library Loans and SCONUL Access

Applications for interlibrary loans can be made via the partner institutions’ library. Students on partnership programmes are not able to apply for interlibrary loans directly from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Unfortunately, students at partnership institutions are not eligible for SCONUL Access.

Online Library

As UWTSD registered students, students based at partner institutions may access many of the University’s subscribed e-resources, where permissible under licensing agreements. These e-resources provide access to a wide range of e-books, e-journals, specialist databases, online newspapers and much more.

The main source of support in using these e-resources will be at partner institution library, however, for general information and advice on accessing the University’s e-resources please contact us.
