World Book Night is just over a week away. This year, we’re delighted to have been chosen to give away copies of Artemis, by Andy Weir. Book fairies will be distributing copies at Bay and Singleton campus bus stops from 14.00 next Tuesday. We’re too excited to wait till then, though, so we’re also giving away copies of the book at our campus libraries this week. Numbers are limited, so don’t delay. Call into Bay, Singleton Park, South Wales Miners or St David’s Park library and help yourself to a book from our display.

Students with a medically attested print disability may be entitled to a copy of Artemis in an accessible format. If you are registered with the Transcription Centre, please contact staff there. They can request a copy via RNIB Bookshare.

Mae Noson Ryngwladol y Llyfr ychydig dros wythnos i ffwrdd. Eleni, rydym ni wrth ein bodd o gael ein dewis i ddosbarthu copïau o Artemis, gan Andy Weir. Bydd rhai o dylwyth teg y llyfrau yn dosbarthu copïau yng ngorsafoedd bysiau campws y Bae a Singleton o 14.00 ddydd Mawrth nesaf. Er, rydym ni wedi cyffroi gormod i aros tan hynny, felly rydym hefyd yn rhoddi copïau o’r llyfr yn llyfrgelloedd ein campws yr wythnos hon. Mae’r niferoedd yn brin, felly peidiwch ag oedi. Galwch yn llyfrgell y Bae, Parc Singleton, Glowyr De Cymru neu Ddewi Sant a helpwch eich hun i lyfr o’n harddangosfa.

Gall myfyrwyr sydd ag anabledd print wedi’i brofi’n feddygol fod yn gymwys am gopi o Artemis mewn fformat hygyrch. Os ydych wedi cofrestru gyda’r Ganolfan Drawsgrifio, cysylltwch â’r staff yno. Gallant wneud cais am gopi drwy RNIB Bookshare.

Tuesday 23rd April is World Book Night. To celebrate, Better Read will be giving away copies of Artemis, by Andy Weir. Andy Weir is the bestselling author of The Martian, which was recently made into a film starring Matt Damon. Artemis is described as “An action-packed, gravity-defying thriller about a criminal who risks her life for independence and money. Jazz is feisty, determined and witty, and you’ll be rooting for her the whole way through.”

To get your free copy of Artemis, look out for our book fairies at Singleton and Bay campus bus stops from 14.00 on the 23rd April.

You can also pick up free copies from the 15th April in Bay Library, Singleton Park Library, South Wales Miners Library and St David’s Park Library. It’s first come, first served, so don’t wait too long to get yours!

Students with a medically attested print disability may be entitled to a copy of Artemis in an accessible format. If you are registered with the Transcription Centre, please contact staff there. They can request a copy via RNIB Bookshare.

Better Read is a Swansea University Libraries project to encourage reading for pleasure to support wellbeing. We’d love to know what you think of Artemis. Let us know in the comments on our blog!

Dydd Mawrth 23 Ebrill yw Noson Llyfr y Byd. I ddathlu, bydd Better Read yn rhoi copïau am ddim o Artemis gan Andy Weir. Andy Weir yw awdur y nofel boblogaidd The Martian, a gafodd ei haddasu yn ddiweddar yn ffilm yn serennu Matt Damon. Disgrifir Artemis fel “Nofel gyffrous llawn digwyddiadau am droseddwr sy’n peryglu ei bywyd am annibyniaeth ac arian. Mae Jazz yn eofn, yn benderfynol ac yn ffraeth, a byddwch chi ar ei hochr hi’r holl ffordd drwy’r nofel.”

I gael eich copi am ddim o Artemis, cadwch lygad allan am ein ffeiriau llyfrau ar gampws Singleton a champws y Bae o 14.00 ar 23 Ebrill.

Gallwch hefyd gael copïau am ddim o 13 Ebrill yn Llyfrgell y Bae, Llyfrgell Parc Singleton, Llyfrgell Glowyr De Cymru a Llyfrgell Parc Dewi Sant. Y cyntaf i’r felin fydd hi, felly peidiwch ag aros yn rhy hir i gael eich copi!

Gall myfyrwyr sydd ag anabledd print wedi’i brofi’n feddygol fod yn gymwys am gopi o Artemis mewn fformat hygyrch. Os ydych wedi cofrestru gyda’r Ganolfan Drawsgrifio, cysylltwch â’r staff yno. Gallant wneud cais am gopi drwy RNIB Bookshare.

Mae Darllen yn Well yn brosiect Llyfrgelloedd Prifysgol Abertawe i annog darllen er pleser ac i gefnogi lles. Carem wybod beth yw eich barn am Artemis. Rhowch wybod i ni yn y sylwadau ar ein blog!

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. This year’s theme is ‘assistive technologies, active participation’. Affordable assistive technologies are essential for many people on the autistic spectrum. It can reduce or eliminate the barriers to their equal participation with others. At Swansea University, there is a suite of assistive technology tools available on all campus PCs. These tools are available to all staff and students and can help everyone’s productivity.

It’s also Autism Awareness Week and Autism Awareness Month. Follow our colleagues in the Centre for Academic Success on Twitter and on Facebook for further links and information this month.
