Medicine (HYMS): Membership

Welcome. These pages bring together key resources for HYMS. Use the tabs below to find books, ebooks, articles, journal titles and other resources.

Joining the University Libraries

 Members of HYMS are entitled to use both the University of Hull and York libraries.

  • Students receive university cards for both institutions which act as library cards. Library membership of the two universities will last for the duration of your course.
  • Members of staff may need to request membership of the universities from HYMS before they can apply for membership of the university libraries. To check your entitlement or request university membership contact the HYMS Executive Office at execoffice@hyms.ac.ukNOTE that if you just wish access to eResources you do not need a library card and should just request a Hull IT Account and York eAccount only.

Further details for staff on joining the libraries and services can be found in:
