This page is aimed at HYMS teaching staff and provides links to information sources from both the University of Hull and York Libraries.
You can find a brief introduction to the HYMS Library service for staff in our welcome document, the link to which is included in your HYMS induction pack.
During the Coronavirus outbreak there will likely be changes to the Library that will affect what services and materials are available to you. Please be assured that we’re here to help and will continue to support you in your studies throughout this period. The video on the right explains what support is available.
You can contact the Academic Liaison team at firstname.lastname@example.org for help via email or to arrange an appointment via video chat or telephone. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need support.
Turnitin is a ‘text matching’ software that is used by institutions all over the world to ensure the integrity of student writing. The University of York subscribes to Turnitin as an institution and it is integrated with the Yorkshare VLE. Student work can be uploaded to Turnitin submission points and is cross-referenced with the contents of Turnitin’s database. Turnitin then produces ‘originality reports’ that show the percentage of matched text in the assignments.
More information and workshops can be found on our Turnitin page.
