The Yorkshare VLE site for your module normally includes an EARL reading list, which links directly to library catalogue records for items in the Library's physical collections, plus e-books, e-journal articles and other web resources. Scanned extracts from Library books are uploaded to EARL when copyright permits.
Books which are essential course reading, and unavailable in e-book format, are located in the Library's Key Texts collection on the ground floor. You can borrow a Key Text for up to four hours during the day, or overnight from 18:00 until 10:00 the following day. Reserve a Key Text in advance via the Library Catalogue.
Books from the upper floors can usually be borrowed for longer: flexible loans. If all the copies of a book are on loan, you can request it. You will receive an email as soon as the book is returned to the Library, and it will be held for you in the Key Texts area.
You can use the YorSearch Library Catalogue to search for material on a subject of your choice:
