#UoYTips: Welcome to the Library

  1. 1. Welcome new undergrads stepping into an academic library for the first time. Welcome students and staff who have travelled a long way across the world to be here. Welcome 3rd years who haven’t really been to the library much before but need to turn your 2:2 into a 2:1 sharpish. Welcome postgrads seeking a scholarly space to develop ideas. Welcome people of York and the surrounding areas. Welcome visitors to the Borthwick, consulting the treasures in our archives. Welcome academics, seeking a place to work without your office phone ringing all the time. Welcome people who are cold and heard we have blankets. Welcome new academic having a look to see if we already stock your books. Welcome person who only ever studies on the very top floor of the Morrell. Welcome people who like the Burton because it feels a bit more like a traditional academic library. Welcome watcher of the CSI Miami boxset we inexplicably have in our audiovisual collection. Welcome person who is only really here for the baguettes in the library café. Welcome first member of your family to go to University, you’ll be brilliant. Welcome people who will go on to make the world better. Welcome to York everyone, and welcome to the Library.
  2. 2. Library Welcome to the #UoYTips from your fellow students, to get you started finding what you need in the library and online: Space, Scholarship and Skills. #UOYTIPS
  3. 3. There are two main campuses at York. The Library is located on Campus West. It contains all the books you’ll need, as well as 1,200 study spaces, PC Classrooms, Laptop Loans, IT Support, and more.
  4. 4. You enter the building through the Morrell Library – you’ll need your student card to get in. The Fairhurst and Burton Libraries are either side.
  5. 5. On Campus East is the Library @ Piazza. This is quiet study space to work in, but it does not contain any books or journals.
  6. 6. In York City Centre is the King’s Manor Library. It does contain some History of Art materials, but anything in the Key Texts Collection is duplicated at the Morrell.
