Other academic libraries are also a resource.
The University of Dundee and Abertay University have a co-operative agreement to allow staff and students from both institutions to use and borrow from each others' libraries free of charge.
How do I join?
- apply for authorisation to join Abertay's Library via Library & Learning Centre staff at the University of Dundee. The University will not approve your application if you have excess unpaid fines or have seriously infringed Library rules
- if you are eligible, complete an application form, and get it authorised by your University of Dundee library
- Abertay University Library is situated on Bell Street, next to Tayside Police Headquarters
- take your authorised application form and your Dundee ID card to Abertay's Library. This will enable you to register for an Abertay Library card
As a member of Abertay University Library service, you will be subject to their policies and procedures, including paying fines for overdue items, and paying for any lost or misused items. University of Dundee staff and students are entitled to borrow up to six books for four weeks. You cannot borrow Short Loan books or other restricted loan items, and you will not be able to access electronic resources.
University of St Andrews
Staff and students at Dundee can also join St Andrews University Library. Please note that application to St Andrews should be made on weekdays between 9 and 5. Remember to take your Dundee matriculation card with you.
Libraries elsewhere in the UK and in Ireland
Most university libraries in the UK and Ireland are members of the SCONUL Access scheme through which you may be eligible to join another library and borrow or use their books and journals. If you don't apply for authorisation through this scheme, you can still use other academic libraries during their summer vacations.
