Location and Access

Fife pcs

The Kirkcaldy Campus is located on Forth Avenue, Kirkcaldy, KY2 5YS (opposite the railway station). We have parking available at the front and at the rear of the campus building.

The Library is open to all University of Dundee students and staff, NHS users, students on placement at local hospitals and subscribers. For NHS membership, please bring a current payslip for registering.

The Library is located on the first floor of Fife Campus (disabled access is limited). If you require library resources (and can't get upstairs), please phone us before your visit on 01382 385930 and we can make alternative arrangements with you.

To access the library after 5pm Monday - Thursday and on Saturday you should ring the doorbell on the main entrance door (if the reception is unmanned) and show your University of Dundee student or staff card to be admitted. External library users should show their University of Dundee Library card and another form of photographic ID.

Library Resources

Kirkcaldy Campus Library hosts a wide variety of books and journals in both hard copy and e-formats. Although most of our stock is nursing and healthcare related, we have a selection of psychology, sociology, student study skills guides and fiction also. 

We have van deliveries bringing books from other University of Dundee libraries on Monday and Thursday mornings if you're waiting for holds to collect. We'll email you to let you know when your hold is available.

We also have access to numerous online databases including CINAHL, MEDLINE and TRIP. For further information, have a look at our Nursing & Health Sciences Guide, with links to a wide array of journal articles. For other subject guides, have a look at our a-z.
