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


This page is aimed at HYMS teaching staff and provides links to information sources from both the University of Hull and York Libraries.

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.

You can access the reading list system here.  You will need your York Login.
