To get you started on finding resources for your studies, check out our Introduction to library and computing services web pages. Our web pages also contain links to our subject guides and a suite of information skills tutorials, together with one-minute videos on a range of topics. Check out our one-minute video on how to borrow a book.
You’ll need your UCard and PIN to borrow books using our self-service machines. If you forget your PIN or want to change it go to https://www.shef.ac.uk/cics/password sign in, and choose one of the top 2 options.
When you borrow a book we’ll renew it for you automatically unless someone else wants it. We’ll send you a weekly borrowing statement by email, so check this carefully to make sure your books aren’t wanted back. Please think of others and return books if they're requested by someone else. You will find yourself blocked from further borrowing if you keep books needed by others.
If the book you want is out on loan, you need to request it online through the StarPlus Library catalogue and we’ll email you when it’s ready to collect. Select the Information Commons as your collection site for 24/7 self-service collection. Remember to sign in to StarPlus by clicking the University members link at the top right of the page (if accessing StarPlus via MUSE you will be signed in automatically)
Remember we’re here to help you, so come and speak to us. Our Library HelpDesk can answer your email or telephone enquiries. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0114 222 7200. You can also get specific subject help from your subject librarian.
