You can request the book via Library Search. When you have found the book you require, select ‘Location’. You can then 'Request' the book.

You will need to enter your University of Dundee username and password. Or you can use the barcode (type the number without the spaces) from the back of your ID card, which has a separate password associated with it. If you use the barcode, your password is initially set to “dundee”, or for students registered since August 2006 your date of birth in the form of ddmmyyyy (for example, “01091982” for 1st September 1982).

Remember any book that you have borrowed may be subject to recall by another library user at any time.
