We have three tailored resource recommendation forms. Using the appropriate one should provide the LLC with all the information required to pursue your suggestion. Don't forget to check Library Search first to see whether we already have the item you require.
We will process your recommendation as soon as possible. If you need to contact us about it, please email email@example.com.
Hover over an image to see title and author details, then select to view in Library Search and sign in to view availability, location, or to place a print hold request in Library search.
Recommend a resource - for academic staff
Material for collection development, or for research purposes across any subject discipline can be requested by staff by e-mailing:
firstname.lastname@example.org. (or send using the appropriate online book recommendation form for staff).
Please check using the 'Search the Library' box at the top of this page, to make sure the item/resource is not already in stock, if not found then either cut and paste the link details into your e-mail using your 'dundee.ac.uk' e-mail address. Alternatively give the author, title, edition, publisher, date and the preferred format. Please note you will be notified when the item is ordered (subject to availability and funds permitting) and a 'Hold' will be placed under your name. You will be sent an e-mail to advise you when the item is ready to collect.
Reservations or Hold requests
If a current stock book/item is already out on loan and no other copies are on the library shelves, please remember to place a 'Reservation request' also known as a 'Hold request' via the Library Search Instructions can be found at: http://www.dundee.ac.uk/library/services/borrowing/ then scroll down to the heading 'How do I place a reservation request?
Placing a Reservation/Hold request immediately, is a great way to let the library staff know that there is a demand for a current stock book/or DVD item and can speed up the process for recall notices to be sent to users with the items, to ask them to return them (within 7 days). In some instances Reservation/Hold requests can trigger either an Inter-Library-Loan request, or an additional print/or e-book copies to be purchased if applicable, to meet the demands of student and staff requests.
