Searching the Library Catalogue

The Library Catalogue YorSearch is accessible from any computer. We also have computers in the Library buildings where you can search the catalogue.

Finding journals

To discover which journals the Library subscribes to, search the YorSearch Library Catalogue for the title or subject of the journal (to locate both e-journals and print archives).

Click View Online for a secure link to the external host website. E-access may be offered by more than one host, so check which years are available from each service.

Or explore BrowZine to browse online journals by subject.

Finding resources

All search engines and databases available through the Library are available in our E-resources Guide. The guide contains a range of different resources, including lots of specialist materials such as newspaper archives and statistics.
