This is a guide to Sheffield Hallam University Library for students and staff from other universities and members of the public.

COVID-19 measures

Library Associate Membership & Visitors

The health and safety of students, staff and visitors is our top priority.  In line with national public health guidance regarding COVID-19, and to protect you and help stop the spread of coronavirus, Adsetts and Collegiate Libraries closed at 5pm, Monday 23rd March and remain closed until further notice.

Unfortunately, due to the measures being taken regarding COVID-19 we are unable to accept any applications for Associate Membership at this time.

Library Search

With over 540,000 print books in the libraries, you're not going to find what you're looking for just by browsing the shelves! What you need is our library search engine, Library Search. It's a lot like Google except, instead of looking for things on the web, it searches our library resources. It's the ideal place to start your research.

Did you know...?

We have Catalogue Plus PCs in libraries (labelled with this logo) so you can use Library Search to look for books and journals. Helpdesk staff are available to assist you as well.
