Meanwhile, Back in the Library...

Last Year the library has put on the exhibition Meanwhile, Back in the Library..., celebrating the role of comics and graphic novels in the academic library. Here's a small selection of relevant titles: but you can find out more about the exhibition, the comics we have in stock, and how comics can be used in learning from the exhibition website or by visiting oucomics reading list.

Sheffield public libraries

You will find useful material at Sheffield public libraries, so it is well worth becoming a member.

This material includes biographical and reference resources which Sheffield Hallam does not possess, as well a local studies collection which is invaluable for projects about Sheffield.

The Central Library is on Surrey Street, just across the road from the Adsetts library.
