We try and use straight-forward language to talk about our resources and services, but nevertheless if you're new to University there's a whole load of terms you may not have used before. If you come across a word or phrase and you're wondering what it really means, check out the Library Language guide, which includes over 125 definitions.
At the moment you're looking at the UoYTips Subject Guide. There are also Subject Guides for each Department here at York, full of useful information and links to the key resources: pick your Department from this list and have a look.
Over on the main library website there's a whole wealth of additional information which you can explore over time, but here we wanted to point you to a few pages to get you started. These will open in a new window so you can keep this list open.
