It is my pleasure to introduce the Library & Learning Centre (LLC), on behalf of all the staff of the LLC.

Richard Parsons, Director

The LLC delivers a wide range of academic services to underpin research, learning and teaching.

We manage the University Library buildings - across five sites, a wide range of information resources -such as books and journals, and a set of online systems - supporting online learning and assessment.

The LLC staff are proud to meet the expectations of the students and staff, and we do this by listening and partnering with individuals, Schools and other directorates.

The Libraries have long opening hours and a wide range of facilities, with staff available to guide members and to support the provision of information. These physical environments continue to evolve as research and study approaches develop.

Many LLC staff are committed to delivering and supporting the online provision of information and systems. Interestingly the less this work is noticed by students the more successful it is. We aim to seamlessly provide access to a wide range of licensed resources, and to provide straightforward access through reading lists, My Dundee, assessments and collaboration tools. We deliver guidance and tuition through a range of approaches, and we welcome meeting University students and staff at any time. The LLC also supports researchers with specialist guidance on publication approaches, including open access and research data management.
