Getting Started

Your Library: Getting Started

Welcome to The University of Sheffield Library.

Your Library provides access to the reading for your course, help when you need it, and support with your research and referencing.

This guide tells you what you need to know to get started using the Library, but remember we're always here if you want to chat to a member of staff.


The Virtual Library Commons

"Come Together, Write Now" is a series of virtual academic reading and writing sessions open to all students, hosted online within the Virtual Library Commons.

These friendly and informative sessions are designed to help you focus on your work, providing the time and space to come together as a reading / writing community while supporting each other. Our Virtual Library Commons is attended by library staff who will be there to answer any questions you may have.
