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 building on this collection by evaluating, collating and managing access to open source materials. Discover library content by searching StarPlus, our discovery tool. The digital library is complemented by a virtual advisory team, with specialist librarians ready to support you, and a suite of research skills and critical thinking workshops and tutorials to support the development of students’ skills.
