About the Sound and Moving Image Library

COVID-19: SMIL facilities are currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact or see the YUL's Library Services During COVID-19 page for current service status.

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.
