Archive Services offers teaching and research support to students and academics from the University of Dundee and other institutions.
Archive staff teach research skills to undergraduate and postgraduate students. History students are encouraged from their first year to visit the Archive, learning to access and use original material. We also work closely with Academic staff to identify items from the collections to use in a range of disciplines including History, English, Medicine and Life Sciences, Education, Geography, Environmental Studies and Philosophy. Art students have also been using the collections as inspiration for their work in graphic design, illustration and medical art modules.
Please contact us to arrange a group visit or to discuss how we can assist with teaching
"The University Archives provides a major resource in support of teaching and learning in history. The impressive facilities and range of archival resources are combined with commendable development strategies for extending the collection and improving access, including the use of digitisation and the integration of archival resources and staff expertise into the delivery of the history curriculum is an exemplary feature of provision."

The ALCMAEON project
The Archive is also involved with major teaching and research projects through the provision of resource material. Alcmaeon is a set of medical ethics teaching resources that uses the history of medicine to enlighten ethics issues and questions and has used records from our medical collections.
