Collection-related activities in the Libraries are coordinated by the Content Development & Analysis Department. This department brings together specialized expertise from across the Libraries to acquire, manage and make discoverable scholarly collections of significant breadth and depth.
Guided by our Collection Development Policy and our Licensing Principles Policy, we strive to ensure that York students and faculty have the broadest possible access to collections that directly support learning, teaching and research.
We welcome suggestions, questions and concerns about any aspect of collections.
