At York University Libraries (YUL), collection building is a collaborative enterprise, bringing together specialized expertise from across the Libraries to acquire, manage and provide York students and faculty with the broadest possible access to scholarly content and collections of significant breadth and depth. 

Collection-related activities are coordinated by the Content Development & Analysis Department, a department housed within the Research and Open Scholarship Division at YUL. This department works closely with the Associate Dean of Libraries, Research and Open Scholarship.

We invite questions, suggestions, and concerns about any aspect of content and collections.
