Now Swanseaa€™s historic former Central Library is taking on a new 21st century role as an £8m international Institute of Sustainable Design.
Swansea University business tenants are reminded that any copying which contributes to activities which are directly or indirectly income-generating is classed as commercial.
Open access resources can be used to find published information swiftly and often without cost.
Swansea councila€™s cabinet has agreed to sell what is one of the citya€™s best-loved seats of learning so it can be transformed into a world-leading centre of design excellence.
Open access material includes journal articles, scholarly and scientific monographs, educational resources, metadata, digitised material and research data. The former library on Alexandra Road has gone to Swansea Metropolitan University which will invest £8m into the project.
In addition, 100% of part-time students who attained an undergraduate degree were in work or training within six months, against a benchmark of 94.7%. It will involve the refurbishment and repair of the original building and its architectural features, as well as the creation of extra space and an exhibition area. In 1962 Peter Sellers starred with Mai Zetterling there in Only Two Can Play, a movie about a bored librarian based on That Uncertain Feeling, a novel by Kingsley Amis who spent many years as an English lecturer at Swansea University.
This figure rose to 99% for part-time students on similar programmes, topping the benchmark of 98.2%.
BBC Wales used the library as a location for the Doctor Who episodes Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead. And it was also used for scenes in the TV series Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

Since Swansea council established a new seafront library at the citya€™s civic centre in 2007, the Victorian building has been home to Swansea Met Universitya€™s Welsh School of Architectural Glass.
As part of the new proposal, the Universitya€™s School of Industrial Design, which offers programmes in product and automotive design, would also be located in the building. Swansea Meta€™s plans will see an international centre for research and design focusing on automotive design, sustainable product design and an architectural glass centre.
Each course offers a real-world experience, guided by lecturers who have worked within their related industries.
Gareth Sullivan, Swansea councila€™s cabinet member for regeneration and planning, said: a€?We are absolutely delighted these exciting plans to transform the former Central Library into such an important educational facility have taken this important step forward. I’ve no doubt that this has had a significant impact on the success of our graduates. The University of Wales Alliance works collaboratively to enrich and enhance Higher Education in Wales. We will retain the grandeur of the buildinga€™s original facade and dome, ensuring any new additions complement the original design. The 65,000ft office building will become a Business and Innovation Centre, based upon the transfer of staff, students and programmes from the Swansea Business School.
The former library was designed by Henry Holtom of Dewsbury in the Italian classical style.
The buildinga€™s circular reference library, 86 ft in diameter, has a distinctive domed top, 25 feet high in the centre.
The collections based there provided a repository of source material for research on Swansea in particular and Wales in general. The Dylan Thomas Collection, established in the early 1950s, consisted of over 3,000 books and periodical articles written by, or about, the Swansea-born poet and author who was himself a regular visitor.
