Thanks to everyone who filled out our ebook survey during the recent Module Fair, we had 335 completed forms.  The survey revealed some interesting facts about your views on ebooks:

  • 50% of you have never used ebooks before.
  • 81% of those who had used ebooks before liked using them.
  • The most popular device for reading ebooks on was a laptop.

If you would like to see what ebooks you have access to as part of your studies here at Swansea University please look at our Library catalogue, iFind Discover, type in the name of the book you are looking for and see if it has an online link.  Whether you are studying Law, Nursing, Medicine, Business, Childhood Studies or any other subject, we have ebooks available for you to use.

Congratulations to Sherrin Gotru, a biochemistry and genetics student who won the Kindle which we were giving away in the Module Fair.  Sherrin told us “Ebooks are a lot more practical, I don’t have to carry loads of books around with me.” Congratulations also go to Caroline Sandbakken who won our runner up prize, which was a library goodie bag.

Sherrin Gotru, winner of the Kindle
