Walk-in access to University eResources

Guidance on accessing Library eResources for walk-in users.


Non-University members registered as University of Sheffield Library users can access many of the electronic journals from the University’s portfolio (those electronic journals where the publisher permits access to authorised walk-in users).

Access is provided via dedicated computers based in Western Bank Library and the Health Sciences Library at the Royal Hallamshire.

To register as an authorised walk-in user you must sign and agree to the code of practice. Forms are available at all four sites. You are also required to provide proof of name and address and membership of the University of Sheffield Library.

Note that access is limited to one hour per user during busy periods.
