Research Tools

The Library has many resources, in print and electronic formats, to utilize for research.

Use the Library's Databases and More page to find the full-text of articles, electronic books, statistics, images, and streaming media.

Consult the Library's research guides for recommended resources by subject area.

If you are trying to access electronic resources from off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your CUNY Login or your York Library barcode number. You can also access the databases after first logging into the York VPN.
