Mae mis Chwefror yn Fis Hanes LGBT ac i ymuno â’r dathliadau rydym am dynnu eich sylw at rywfaint o eitemau o’n casgliadau…

Ffuglen

Mae gennym nifer o weithiau ffuglen sy’n ymwneud â materion LGBT ar draws ein llyfrgelloedd.

Mae “Welsh Boys Too” a ysgrifennwyd gan yr awdur Stonewall arobryn o Gymru, John Sam Jones yn gasgliad o wyth stori fer sy’n myfyrio ar sut y daeth Cymry o bob oed, eu perthnasau a’u cyfeillion i delerau gyda bod yn hoyw. Hefyd mae gennym “Fishboys of Vernazza” gan yr un awdur.

Caiff y themâu crefydd a chariad un rhyw eu harchwilio yn “Oranges are not the only fruit” sef nofel rhannol fywgraffiadol am droi’n oedolyn gan Jeanette Winterson. Mae gennym nifer o nofelau eraill gan yr un awdur gan gynnwys “The world and other places”. Dewch o hyd iddynt ar lefel 1 Adain y Gorllewin yn Llyfrgell Parc Singleton yn PR6073.I558.

Mae gwaith gan awduron eraill sy’n ysgrifennu am themâu LGBT sydd wedi’i gadw yn Llyfrgell Parc Singleton yn cynnwys nofelau Sarah Waters yn PR6073.A828 gan gynnwys “Tipping the velvet” a “The night watch”.

Mae’r cyfnodolion print sydd gennym yn ein llyfrgelloedd yn cynnwys “GLQ: a journal of lesbian and gay studies” a chewch ddod o hyd iddo yn HQ1.G46 yn Llyfrgell Parc Singleton.

February is LGBT History Month and to join in the celebration we thought we’d highlight some items in our collections…

Fiction

We hold several works of fiction on LGBT related themes across our libraries.

“Welsh Boys Too” written by Stonewall Award winning Welsh author John Sam Jones is a collection of eight short stories about how Welshmen of various ages come to terms with being gay.  We also hold “Fishboys of Vernazza” by the same author.

The themes of religion and same sex love are explored in “Oranges are not the only fruit”, a semi-autobiographical coming of age novel by Jeanette Winterson.  We also hold several other novels by the same author including “The world and other places”.  You will find them on level 1 West of the Singleton Park Library at PR6073.I558.

Works by other authors writing on LGBT themes held at the Singleton Park Library include Sarah Waters’ novels at PR6073.A828, these include “Tipping the velvet” and “The night watch”.  Alice Walker’s works, including “The Color Purple” are at PS3573.A425. Alan Hollinghurst’s novel “The line of beauty” can be found at PR6058.O4515 L56 2004.

History

Books held in the Singleton Park Library on the theme of LGBT history include “The rise of a gay and lesbian movement” by Barry D Adam at HQ76.5 ADA, “Not a passing phase : reclaiming lesbians in history 1840-1985” by the Lesbian History Group HQ75.5 LES and “Transgender warriors : making history from Joan of Arc to Dennis Rodman” by Leslie Feinberg HQ77.9 .F44 1996.

You will find further reading on the LGBT reading list that we have put together.  On the right hand side you will see that you can apply filters e.g. you can limit your results to fiction, history, films, TV series etc..  If the book you are interested in isn’t available in your campus library, you can sign in to iFind and Request that it is sent for you. This is just a selection of the resources we have to offer. You can find more by searching iFind or browsing the library shelves.  Ask the staff at the information desk if you need help with your search or you can email us at library@swansea.ac.uk.

Subject Librarians at both the Bay and Park campuses set up the first of their “Survive and Thrive” pop-ups during the Autumn term last month. As well as promoting the support they can offer students during a busy assignment period, they also invited students to share their own tips. The following come direct from students sharing their advice, not just on how you can survive assignments but also, on how to give yourself the best chance to reach your true potential.

  • “Start Early” – a recurring tip advises starting your assignments/revision as soon as you know what the task is. One student says “it is great to start early and be a “tortoise” or a slow cooker to finish it efficiently”.
  • “Pace yourself…step by step” – Take the time to “Break the task down into daily small tasks and plan your missions”
  • “Food. Music. Warmth.” – Think about where you are studying. Do you need somewhere alone or do you prefer a group? Are your best places to work silent or do you find music helps you focus? Find out what works for you.
  • “Ask for as much help as you can…” – There is a whole network of support out there for you. Your friends, family, librarians, and of course the teaching staff in your college. One lecturer also stopped by the popup and gave the following tip “Always talk to your tutor if you don’t understand the assignment – They won’t bite!”
  • “Do background reading” – A lot of students stressed the importance of reading from different sources to get the best marks possible. Not sure where to find the best sources then “Talk to the librarians”.
  • “Talks on how to use the facilities” – Learning how to write academic essays, find sources, use referencing, manage time…these are all skills that students found invaluable. You only have to learn the skills once and “You will be able to use it every single essay you ever write”.
  • “Remember to take a break when working on assignments” – Looking after yourself has to be a big priority. Take breaks away from your desk for a walk, chat, fresh air, cuppa… whatever you need.
  • “Use lateral thinking” –Make revision more effective by thinking outside the box, use visual or interactive ideas, have fun with it. I love this suggestion for anyone studying anatomy “Use an eyeliner to draw the bones on the body rather than reading bone types in a book”.

Feel free to share your study advice on twitter #SUTopTips.

We hope to make the “Survive and Thrive” popups a regular feature during peak exam and assignment time. But students can get advice from the subject teams any time of year – in person, face to face, online. Check out our Library Guides for all the different ways to contact us.

Good luck with your exams and assignments this term.

Yn ystod tymor yr Hydref buodd eich Llyfrgellwyr Pwnc yn llyfrgelloedd Parc Singleton a’r Bae yn cynnal y cyntaf o’r digwyddiadau “Goroesi a Fynnu”. Buon nhw’n cynnig cymorth ac adnoddau defnyddiol i’ch cynorthwyo wrth i chi gwblhau aseiniadau, ac hefyd buon nhw’n casglu eich cynghorion ar goroesi aseiniadau ac arholiadau.  Dyma rhai ohonynt:

  • “Start Early” – cyngor a ddaeth lan yn gyson, dechreuwch eich aseiniadau/adolygu cyn gynted ag sy’n bossib. Dywedodd un myfyriwr “it is great to start early and be a “tortoise” or a slow cooker to finish it efficiently”.
  • “Pace yourself…step by step” – Cymerwch yr amser i “Break the task down into daily small tasks and plan your missions”
  • “Food. Music. Warmth.” –  Meddyliwch ambyti ble yr ydych yn astudio. Ydych chi angen rhywle ar ben eich hun neu a oes well gennych chi astudio mewn grŵp? A oes well gyda chi weithio yn dawel neu a ydych angen gerddoriaeth i helpu chi ganolbwyntio? Meddyliwch am beth sy’n gweithio i chi.
  • “Ask for as much help as you can…” – Mae rhwydwaith eang o gefnogaeth ar gael i chi. Eich ffrindiau, teulu, llyfrgellwyr, ac wrth gwrs eich ddarlithwyr yn y Coleg. Dyma un gair o gyngor gan darlithydd buodd yn y Llyfrgell “Always talk to your tutor if you don’t understand the assignment – They won’t bite!”
  • “Do background reading” – Buodd lot o fyfyrwyr yn pwysleisio pwysigrwydd darllen wahanol ffynonellau er mwyn cael y marciau gorau posibl. Fel dywedodd un myfyriwr, os nad ydych yn siwr ble i ddod o hyd i’r ffynonellau gorau yna “Talk to the Librarians”.
  • “Talks on how to use the facilities” – Dysgu sut i ysgrifennu traethodau academaidd, dod o hyd i ffynonellau, cyfeirnodi yn gywir, rheoli amser … dyma’r sgiliau mae ein myfyrwyr yn meddwl sy’n amhrisiadwy. Fel a ddywedodd un o’n myfyrwyr, dim ond unwaith sydd angen i chi ddysgu’r sgiliau ac “You will be able to use it every single essay you ever write”.
  • “Remember to take a break when working on assignments” – Cofio gofalu amdanoch eich hun. Cymerwch seibiant i ffwrdd oddi wrth eich desg, ewch am dro, cael sgwr, cael awyr iach, cael paned … beth bynnag yr ydych ei angen.
  • “Use lateral thinking” – Gwnewch adolygu yn fwy effeithiol drwy feddwl y tu allan i’r blwch, defnyddiwch syniadau gweledol neu ryngweithiol, a cael hwyl ag ef. Dyma ein hoff awgrym ar gyfer unrhyw un sy’n astudio anatomeg “Use an eyeliner to draw the bones on the body rather than reading bone types in a book”.

Rhannwch eich cyngor ar adolygu/aseiniadau ar-lein gyda’r hash-nod #SUTopTips.

Gallwch cysylltu gyda’ch Llyfrgellwyr Pwnc ar unrhyw adeg o’r flwyddyn trwy y wefan Library Guides. Gallwch hefyd archebu apwyntiad i’n gweld yno.

Pob hwyl gydach arholiadau ac aseiniadau.
