  • Everything tab:
    • Combines the University Collections and searches a multi resource platform.
    • Used to find all the resources available in StarPlus
    • Most useful for performing a general search for materials on a topic but not for finding a specific resource.
    • You can end up with lots of results that will need to be narrowed down.
    • Unlike results shown in University Collections full access of material is not always available. 

To carry out a more focused search you can use the University Collections tab or Articles and More.

  • University Collections tab
    • Searches for books, journals, databases, theses/ dissertations and more that the University of Sheffield library holds or subscribes to.  If a title or journal is available in this tab you can access the resource.  Please remember to check availability and the dates the journal runs from.
  • Articles and More
    • Searches a general multi disciplinary database.  
    • This will search a variety of resources, including journal articles, conference papers and open access books
