Dundee University

We have a reciprocal agreement with Dundee University which means that our staff and students may borrow books and consult other items held at any of Dundee University's libraries. Their catalogue is available online, but there are restrictions on borrowing some material and you will not be able to gain access to any electronic resources held at Dundee. To join Dundee University library you need to complete a membership application at the Support Enquiry Zone (SEZ). You must have no outstanding fines or books with us. Under the terms of the agreement we cannot authorise your membership otherwise. For full membership information see Dundee University's web site

Students and non-academic staff can borrow up to 3 x 4-week loan items, academic staff may borrow up to 6 items. You must agree to abide by Dundee University Library's regulations, which differ from our own. The University of Abertay library acts as guarantor for our staff and students. If you fail to return Dundee University books the debt will be transferred to us and could affect your access to facilities and ultimately your ability to graduate.

SCONUL Access member libraries

SCONUL Access is a reciprocal service supported by most of the Higher Education institutions in the UK. It allows placement, diistance learning or part time students, postgraduate students, researchers and staff to have borrowing rights at another member library. Full time undergraduate students can often be given reference access. Institutions allow different levels of access and may restrict membership for some categories of user, so you need to check the details for the library you wish to join. You can apply to use the scheme online at http://www.sconul.ac.uk/sconul-access. You will need to state what type of course you are on (full time undergraduate, placement, part time postgraduate etc.); that you are a student at University of Abertay and you will need to select an institution that you would like to use. You need only apply once even if you wish to use multiple libraries. Your application will be forwarded to us for approval and you should receive a response within 3 working days.

The University of Abertay library acts as guarantor for our staff and students. If you fail to return books borrowed under the SCONUL Access agreement the debt will be transferred to us and could affect your access to facilities and ultimately your ability to graduate.
