As students at the University of Sheffield, you have access to the University library's eResources from both on and off campus. Always make sure you are logged in to MUSE so you can search all of our collections and get direct access to full texts in electronic format.
StarPlus is the library catalogue and search platform. It allows you to search for and gives you direct access to full-text eBooks, databases and eJournals, meaning they can be accessed at any time if you have an internet connection.
The library also provides online reading lists for your modules/courses called resource lists. These lists contain links to electronic resources such as full-text journal articles, eBooks and databases in addition to items physically held in the library. All you have to do is enter your module code or the name of your course.
The Library provides you with access to thousands of eBooks via StarPlus. eBooks are accessible anytime, anywhere and are easy to navigate and search.
