Qualtrics - a new surveying tool

University of York have a new survey tool called Qualtrics, which makes it quick and easy to design your own surveys. The tool is available at and there is a blogpost about how it has been used in the past by University of York's Social Policy Research Unit at

To use it you will need to set up an account with your University of York username and password.

Are you a student? Do you want us to buy some more books?

The University of York is again giving students (and that includes all HYMS students) the opportunity to tell them what books to buy, whether it's a title the Library doesn’t have or an additional copy of a book you’re finding it hard to get your hands on. We aim to buy e-books through the scheme where possible, so even if you're based at Hull, there's absolutely no reason not to make use of your York credentials and take part.

There's £20K to spend and the scheme will close when all the money's used up.

A MoreBooks button (above) will appear alongside book titles in YorSearch and all you need to do is click it and enter your details in the form. To suggest an item that York doesn’t currently have, go to the New titles through MoreBooks form. The Library will then purchase a copy of the book you want. We're looking forward to doing even more book-shopping this time around, so please let us know what you'd like to see on the shelves and e-shelves!
