Introduction to Sheffield Hallam University

Distance learner support services

You can choose to register to use our distance learner support services. If a journal article you want is not available online or is only available in print format at Sheffield Hallam University, you can use our distance learner support service to order a digitized copy of the print journal article which we will email to you. Find out more here https://libguides.shu.ac.uk/distancelearners or watch our short video. See the information on this webpage about Document Supply or click here.

Document Supply

If you need a journal article and it is not available through Library Search, you can request a copy through Sheffield Hallam's Document Supply Services; you may know this as inter-library loan.  The journal article will be sent in digitized format by email. There is no charge for this service. Please note, if the journal is available in print at Sheffield Hallam University you can order a digitized copy through our Distance Learner Support Service.  

We regret that we are unable to post print books to your home country.
