Easter Vacation 2017

Taking books home over Easter?

As you already know, we usually renew your books for you automatically if they haven’t been requested. However, over the Easter holidays, things will work a little differently.

Loan Periods

Opening Times

Before you go home, please check myLibrary Account in StarPlus to make sure that your items have been renewed over the vacation; from here you will be able to renew any non-requested items that have not already automatically renewed.

Requests

  • If we don’t have a physical copy of the book you need, don’t worry, we also have a wide selection of e-books and other online resources available through StarPlus.
  • If you’ve made any requests for books that you no longer need over Easter, please remember to cancel them online.

If you encounter any difficulties, please contact the Library on 0114 222 7200 or email library@sheffield.ac.uk
