York Digital Library (YODL) is an online repository for multimedia resources including images, past exam papers and Masters theses.
University of York users should log in to access the Digital Library. A number of our collections are also publically available.

Either use the search box above, or go to dlib.york.ac.uk.
Don't forget to log in with your University username and password in the top right of the screen to access all resources available to you.
The homepage allows you to search across all resources, or restrict your search by format using the tabs (eg Image, Audio) above the search box.
Search directly from the homepage or select the search tab. As you begin to type in the search box, suggested search terms will appear.
Search results are displayed with the option to sort by relevance, title, or date added. You can filter your results by the terms listed in the left menu.
When you find a resource that you wish to view, click on the thumbnail or caption and a full item record will be displayed.
This screen may differ slightly depending on the type of material you are viewing, but it will usually contain more detailed information about the resource and a button to download the resource.
The full item record for an image also has a series of viewing options which appear as you hover your mouse over the image.
From the homepage choose the Browse tab. A list of collections will be displayed in the left column; view the sub collections using the + and - buttons.
