Library Resources

Fife Campus Library hosts a wide variety of books and journals in both hard copy and e-formats.  Although most of our stock is nursing and healthcare related, we have a selection of psychology, sociology, student study skills guides and fiction also.

We have van deliveries bringing books from other University of Dundee libraries on Monday and Thursday mornings if you’re waiting for holds to collect.  We’ll email you to let you know when your hold is available.

We also have access to numerous online databases including CINAHL, MEDLINE and TRIP.  For further information, have a look at our Nursing & Health Sciences Guide, with links to a wide array of journal articles.  For other subject guides, have a look at our a-z.

The Library has also acquired Reading Lists an online list of resources for students to use on their specific modules.
