Welcome to the Subject Guide for the Centre for Medieval Studies

Welcome to this Subject Guide, which brings together key resources and information for students and staff.

If you're brand new to York (or even if you aren't...) you may find our Information For New Students page useful. It will give you a To Do list to get you started; if you have any questions, let us know. In the meantime, go on a Virtual Tour of the Library

Picture of students graduating in Central Hall. Caption: what's the one thing they all had in common? They all did the reading. Feel ready. Come to the library.

An introduction to Gale Primary Sources and Gale Digital Scholar Lab

Watch this video to learn more about Gale Digital Scholar Lab and the wide variety of text data mining applications available within it. As well as integrating with the Gale Primary Sources collections that the Library owns, the Lab can be used to analyse your own text based datasets, so is of value to all research disciplines.

You can access all of the resources listed within the video via our E-Resources Guide

Please note - the new Gale Primary Sources titles described within the video are expected to be available from February 2023.

Referencing guides for CMS

The Centre for Medieval Studies follows the referencing styles used by its parent departments: English, History, History of Art and Archaeology. Therefore please refer to the appropriate guide for the module you are taking. For your dissertation you should discuss the appropriate referencing style with your supervisor.
