We are a member of SCONUL Access, which provides staff and students at participating higher education libraries in the UK and Ireland with access to our facilities, books, journals, and in some cases borrowing too.

If you have any enquiries, please contact the Virtual Advisory Help Service, or visit Western Bank Library or the Health Sciences Library (Royal Hallamshire Hospital) during staffed service hours.

We also offer reference access to visiting SCONUL students during the summer vacation period. All you’ll need is your valid University of Sheffield visitor Library card.
