Information for International students and staff

Welcome to the University of Sheffield Library where we aim to provide an inclusive and supportive environment to all our members.

Wherever you are in the world - provided you can access the internet with a modern web-browser - it should be possible for you to have access twenty four hours per day, every day of the year, to the electronic web-based resources and services provided by The University of Sheffield. These include the Library’s electronic journals, books and subject databases.

When you first register (online) with the University, you will be given a University of Sheffield username (which cannot be changed) and asked to create a password. Use these to access our online resources via StarPlus. You will also be given an email address which we use to correspond with you.

The Quick links on this page offer you direct access to the wealth of information about making the most of the Library’s services and resources. If you are based in Sheffield, you may also like to visit the See also and Other useful links for further information.
