Welcome to Your Library Services

Welcome to The University of Sheffield Library.

Your Library provides access to the reading for your modules, support with your research and referencing, and help when you need it. We are keen to enable all students to have equal access to library spaces and resources, please see our Inclusive Learning webpages for more information.

This guide tells you what you need to know about using the Library, but remember we're always here, online and in person, if you want to chat to a member of staff.

The Library supports independent study.
