Anything required to support a taught module must be included on a published resources list.
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 email@example.com.
Alternatively, complete the Staff Resource Recommendation form (for library stock).
Lecturers should already have highlighted everything required to support a taught module by
means of a resources list. 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 email firstname.lastname@example.org to request extra copies or to recommend books
which are not on the Resource lists but may be useful for a dissertation, thesis or project.
Alternatively, complete the More Books - Student Resource Recommendation form.

MoreBooks - a book recommendation service for students
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 your studies, a dissertation, thesis or project.
Send the details of the book and why you need it, using your dundee.ac.uk email address to email@example.com and we'll do our best to respond to your request as quickly as possible.
Suggestions are welcome from all students, however this service should benefit final year students in particular, who may need books on more specialised areas.
Note: For the More Books service the LLC policy is to purchase an e book, if available as this is the quickest method of purchasing a book. Print books can take up to 3 weeks to arrive in the Library and Learning Centre. Please advise if a print version is preferred. We may contact you to discuss alternative options if, for example, the book requested is too expensive or difficult to purchase/source quickly, we may suggest an Inter-Library Loan. To find out more, please refer to the Inter-Library-Loans box on this page.

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.
