Getting the most out of the digital library

The University of Sheffield has an extensive digital library, with close to a million ebooks and over 60,000 journal titles (at least 400,000 new articles per year). We are working hard to build on this collection by evaluating, collating and managing access to open source materials and resources that are being made more openly available at this time. Discover library content by searching StarPlus, our discovery tool. The digital library is complemented by a suite of online information and digital literacy tutorials, and a virtual advisory team, with specialist librarians ready to support you.
