  • NHS staff can apply for membership of the Library however this does not give access to University computing services, so access to many electronic resources will be restricted.  Once a member you can access resources via Walk-in Access via dedicated computers based in Western Bank Library and the Health Sciences Library.
  • Clinicians with honorary status at the University of Sheffield can apply for membership which will access to the University of Sheffield's eResources via StarPlus. This includes most of the consultants and many of the registrars working in STH, SCH and the associated teaching hospitals.
  • If the Library doesn’t have the item you require or you cannot access it and you can’t locate it from any other source, we will try to obtain it as an Interlibrary request. 

Digital content purchased by NHS England is accessible to NHS staff (including those University staff with honorary NHS contracts), via NICE Evidence Journals and Databases on your NHS computer. Once you have logged in using an Athens username and password, content, purchased at a regional or local level is also available by clicking on the link to ‘My Resources – access your links, alerts and library information’.
