The LLC welcomes suggestions for new or additional resources.

From Students 

Lecturers should already have highlighted everything required to support a taught module by means of a resources list on ReadingLists@Dundee. Extra copies or electronic versions of books may be purchased when demand is evident from the number of holds which students have placed.

Students can also use the More Books service to request extra copies or to recommend books which are not on ReadingLists@Dundee but may be useful for a dissertation, thesis or project.

From Staff

Anything required to support a taught module must be included on a resources list published on ReadingLists@Dundee. Published lists are reviewed by the LLC's acquisitions staff and purchasing decisions made on the basis of student numbers, assigned importances, and ready availability of the resources required.

Recommendations for resources not directly required for teaching should be directed to llc-bibliographicservices@dundee.ac.uk.

Aims

The Library & Learning Centre aims to purchase or make available all the resources need to support module Reading Lists. 

In addition, we try to support, through our More Books, and our Interlibrary loan services, many additional requests to support individual research, whether for dissertations or research projects.  Occasionally materials may be out of print, online versions may not be available, or other libraries may refuse to lend rare books or journals.  Additionally, we must keep within our budget, and will sometimes either refuse requests, or suggest that students visit other University or National  Libraries, to consult their printed resources, or online materials on a 'walk in user' basis.  Please ask Library staff if you need any help or advice with this.
