You get ordinary loans for 3 weeks during term-time (these can be renewed up to 3 times unless someone else requests them) plus there are 1-week loans, 1-day loans, and 4hr loans in Key Texts.

And yes, there are fines! 30p a day, but they go up to 90p a day if someone's requested the item. For Key Texts, DVDs, and other 24hr loans, it's £1 an hour! Study spaces PC rooms Using the library catalogue... The catalogue (Yorsearch) can be accessed from any PC, at home or on campus. There are catalogue PCs dotted around the library which are just for searching. Yorsearch:
Locates books, journals and other resources in the library.
Finds out if items are available or on loan.
Links to electronic resources.
Allows you to access “My Library Account”.

http://yorsearch.york.ac.uk Once you're at http://yorsearch.york.ac.uk just type something into the search box to get started. Finding electronic resources... Booking key texts... Your lecturers will have put the really important books from your reading lists into Key Texts. These are available for 4hr loans only, and can't be renewed - but you can book them in advance to ensure you get a turn. The library spends literally millions of pounds on electronic resources - e-books, e-journals, and databases - so you can get them for free. This is often stuff that Google cannot find, so make the most of it!

The majority of e-Resources can be accessed from any PC, once you've logged in with your IT username and password. You can start off in the usual way, by searching from http://yorsearch.york.ac.uk Click the 'view electronic resource' link SFX is the link between the catalogue and the journal websites. Check the date ranges, and click 'Go' on the one that matches the article you need. On the publisher's website, click Full Text The PDF of the article will open, and you can usually save or print. In the Harry Fairhurst you can use your mobile, but in the rest of the library you can't. You can have bottled water anywhere in the library, but you can only have other food and drink in the Fairhurst.

Hot food is out, so no pizza deliveries to the library, please... 56 seater PC room.

There's also 2 conference / teaching rooms upstairs. There's also a Postgraduate Study Area on this floor. Welcome to the library. Useful links. The library contains all kinds of resources to help you throughout your degree. A good place to start is the library homepage - check out the quick links down the right handside. The URL is http://www.york.ac.uk/library Thanks for listening! Opens 9-5, Monday to Friday.

You can get phone support 24/7 by calling (01904 32) 3838 Bookable study rooms Copyright. e-Learning Development Team Go to https://vle.york.ac.uk/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp to access the Virtual Learning Environment (or VLE). Once you've logged in with your IT username and password, you can go to the Library tab to access various tutorials that you may find helpful, including: Welcome to the Library, Using YorSearch Library Catalogue, Using the Classic Library Catalogue, Understanding and using Journals and Evaluating Websites. Ned Potter (hello!) is the Academic Liaison Librarian for TFTV - basically the first point of contact between the department and the library. I run training sessions on using our resources, and I can help you search effectively in your subject area, evaluate what you find, use print and electronic resources better, reference your work correctly, and use Web 2.0 tools to keep up with your areas of research. I am here to make your academic life a little easier!

During busy periods I'll be running drop-in sessions within the department. ned.potter@york.ac.uk 324518 At York we have both a Special Collections department and an Archives department, containing lots of interesting old (and sometimes new) materials. They're both accessed via the Borthwick Institute. Special Collections has lots of Yorkshire-based theatre ephemera, like playbills. Some of our Special Collections are housed in York Minster.

The Borthwick has all kinds of treasures, including:
The archives of many contemprary (and actually still living...) playrights - their original manuscripts
e.g the Barry Took archive
Complete scripts from all Alan Ayckbourn's plays (including the withdrawn ones) with multiple versions, letters and correspondence, photographs, programmes etc
The archvie of Booker prize winner David Storey
Lots of other stuff that hasn't even been catalogued yet Audio/Visual Collection TFTV:
Books All the books in the TFTV subject areas are on the 2nd floor of the JBM. Look for books whose labels start 'LP' and you'll find Film + TV materials, 'LT' and you'll find materials about Theatre, and 'MA' for literature (including plays). The Humanities Reading Room contains useful reference books. On the second floor (in the far right corner as you look at the floor from the stairs) is the temporary home for the audio-visual collection - around 4,000 CDs and DVDs, plus some VHS tapes, and equipment to play them all on.

See more about our audio-visual collections at: http://www.york.ac.uk/library/collections/audiovisual/#collections

A brand new audio-visual suite will open in the Harry Fairhurst next year. http://www.york.ac.uk/library/subjectresources/tftv/ Map drawn by Matthew Herring

Prezi designed by Ned Potter (http://thewikiman.org)
Unauthorised reproduction of this Prezi is prohibited That is to say, the North Rooms contain all the hard copies. Wherever possible we subscribe to e-journals, so you can access them any time of day from wherever you have internet access. We have thousands of them via the catalogue, and thousands more in the databases available via Metalib. We provide a free minibus service to the
British Library Document Supply Centre (BLDSC)
Reading Room at Boston Spa for research students,
staff and undergraduates.

There is one trip per week on alternate Wednesdays
and Fridays throughout the year, term and vacation. The pickup point is the car park in front of the Information Centre at 9:30am, and it leaves the Reading Room at 4:15pm.

You can book a seat online through the Library Catalogue. Search for Minibus, login and select the date/s you want to go from the list available.

Use the British Library online catalogue to check if BLDSC holds what you want to read. We recommend that you request items in advance (up to a maximum of 16). Advance request forms are available from Lending Services, Help & Information you'll need to post them to the Reading Room, at least six days in advance.

More info here: http://www.york.ac.uk/library/libraries/britishlibrary/ If we don't have what you need, it may be worth trying to get hold of it via Interlending. This is when we order materialsfor you from another library - either the whole book or copies of articles / chapters, via Secure Electronic Delivery.

Each request (that we manage to get for you) costs £2 - it's worth noting that it costs us around 5 times that, so we're keeping the costs to you as low as possible.

You can make your request via the My Library Account section of the catalogue.

Now we're going to look at using Metalib to find specialist TFTV resources. Go to http://bit.ly/TFTVWORKBOOK - it's case-sensitive to make sure you use the caps... Open the workbook full-screen - pages 1 to 10 consists of things we've already covered, so go to page 11. Read about Metalib, watch the demo, then try the excercises We also have books about writing essays etc - they're in the O section on the 1st floor. Just type 'writing essays' into Yorsearch.
