Sheffield Authors Showcase

A celebration of the impact of the research and teaching at The University of Sheffield.

The Sheffield Authors Showcase honours the achievements of our academic community, both by celebrating their contribution to academic endeavour and by recognising the effect that their scholarly works have had on their readers.

This new collection highlights the outstanding work of our academic authors both past and present and we hope will continue to do so in the future. The collection is reference only, with readers able to take books in to the Reading Room.

The Showcase opened 11 September 2018 at Western Bank Library

Throughout the last year we have been canvassing staff, students and alumni to garner nominations for books by our Sheffield Academics that have inspired, motivated or informed.
