Sound and Moving Image Library


All VHS videocassettes are being moved from SMIL to another storage location and will be unavailable from Monday, May 26 to Friday, June 6, 2014.

Beginning June 9 we will require three weekdays notice to retrieve these items from storage for classroom or personal use.

SMIL houses a multidisciplinary media collection available to the York University community for educational, research and personal use. SMIL collections include 100,000 CDs and DVDs for loan, 150,000 audio and video files for online access, and a large archive of historial formats for research.


We are located on the main floor of Scott Library. As you enter Scott Library, turn right, go past the escalator and you’ll see the Sound and Moving Image Library to your right.
