Library and Archives

Thanks to your support, our Library and Archives are a treasure trove of knowledge that inspires innovative ideas and world-class research.

The Library and Archives collect and preserve research materials and make them available to students, researchers and the public – now and for future generations. This vital work is central to the advancement of knowledge and discovery at York.

I think the Library is a fantastic resource and one of the best things that York offers new students. Thank you!
