Resources – up-to-date texts

If you need a book for your studies, course work, dissertation, or exams which the Library doesn't have, or if you think an extra copy, later edition or eBook would be helpful, please let us know by email morebooks@dundee.ac.uk

In addition, colleagues from the LLCCI Digital Skills and Resources team work closely with our Academics in creating, updating and maintaining Resource Lists for each module throughout the Academic year. The benefits for students
