Library Access

Modified on Wed, 26 Jul 2023 at 12:02 PM

You can access the Learna Library from your dashboard on Moodle. If you are having issues locating this, please contact Student Services and we will be able to assist.

From the Learna Library, you can access a few different resources.

The Academic Skills section provides some information on referencing and academic practice. This information can also be found in Study Skills.

Search Journals will take you to the Learna EBSCO portal. By clicking through from here, you should be logged in automatically from your Moodle login. On EBSCO, you can search for papers and articles from academic journals to help with your studies.

The University of South Wales Library Resources page will take you to the USW library FINDit, as well as providing some additional helpful resources on how to navigate and use FINDit.

Key Search Engines and Open Access eBooks is the last page of links to helpful search engines and resources for your studies, such as Google Scholar and Medscape.

Finally, your Reading Lists will take you directly to the resources for each module of your programme, accessed via your USW login. Please note that independent reading around the topic is expected - it will not only enhance your learning and Academic Forum posting, but also topics covered in this reading may come up in your End of Module Exam, if your programme has one.
