Libraries and IT facilities

See our Welcome to the Library online Guides for CPE students.  These contain details of how to access our services during COVID-19.

Whilst you are studying you will have access to use the University libraries and be able to set up an account to use the computer network.

Libraries

Part-time students are eligible to borrow six books at any one time. You have access to borrow books, newspapers, magazines, journals, CDs, DVDs and collections held on microfilm and microfiche.

The library catalogue is available online and you can search for resources from libraries across the University. You can also use terminals located in all the libraries to search both the University and other library catalogues. You can also check your library account and make reservations online.

The Senghennydd Library is in the same building as Continuing and Professional Education and is open for most of the year. You can see a location map and opening times.

Libraries also run skills workshops which you are welcome to attend to help you make the most out of the service.

Computer access

As a student on an accredited course you will be given a computer account. When you log onto the University system with this account, which can be done on campus or at home, you will have access to a whole range applications and software, including:

  • email and calendar
  • the online library catalogue
  • our online virtual learning environment
  • announcements and news
  • online communities.

Within the Continuing and Professional Education building there are computers available for you to use in the Cyber Café and within the Senghennydd Library.

This guide will help you access your email and Learning Central, our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
