Your library account

Your Library Account keeps track of your loans and requests.

You can check it via one of our self-service kiosks or via our website https://www.dundee.ac.uk/library/.

To sign in to your account you need a Library username and password - this was supplied by email when your application for membership was approved.

You should change your password the first time you log in; please note that this cannot be done at a self-service kiosk. The new password must be at least 8 characters, and must include at least one upper case letter, one lower case letter, and one numeric digit.

Using WiFi in the Library

Use of the fixed PCs in our libraries is restricted to students and members of staff from the University of Dundee.  

If you are a student at another university you may be able to use eduroam to connect to the internet on your own device. This may need to be set up at your home institution first.

Members of the public can also access the internet on your own device, please set up an account for _TheCloud before you visit. https://www.dundee.ac.uk/it/services/getconnected/guestsfromelsewhere/

UoD IT staff are based in our Main Library and will be happy to advise or assist.
