How to borrow a book from the PDC library?

To borrow a book from the PDC library you need to:

  • Be a postdoc in the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Sciences
  • Contact the PDC ( or 028 9097 2991) to check if the book you want is available and arrange pick-up date/time
  • Sign the PDC library conditions of utilisation (the first time you borrow a book)
  • Come to the PDC (3rd floor of the MHLS Faculty office) to pick-up the book and update the registory
  • Bring the book back to the PDC within 2 weeks, undammaged
  • Feedback on the books is much welcome!

Book consultation:

Postdocs, other staff members or PhD students can consult PDC books on site when the PDC is open and a member of the PDC staff is available. Contact the PDC ( or 028 9097 2991) to arrange date/time.

Additional information:

  • You can borrow a book you already have in your possession for an additional 2 weeks (only if the book in question has not been requested by another postdoc)
  • If you loose or damage a book, you will be asked to replace it
  • Do not directly give a PDC book to another postdoc without first getting approval by the PDC (if it disappears you will be responsible!)
  • Do not write in the books or fold corners; take care of the books when carrying them
