Title
Observational constraints on the value of the viscosity parameter alpha

Abstract
I will present the values of the accretion-disc viscosity parameter alpha that can be obtained from observations of dwarf-nova outbursts. I will discuss the method used and the alpha values that can be deduced from observations of outbursting accretion discs in other systems.
