Take the Library with you

Globe

As a Sheffield Hallam student, you can still use the University’s library resources no matter where you are in the world (as long as you have internet connection, that is).

To make sure you can get access to electronic books, journal articles, and more, the best place to start is shuspace.  Go to shuspace.shu.ac.uk and log in using your University username and password, then click on the Library Gateway link at the top of the screen.

A new window will pop up.  Click on ‘Login as SHU students and staff’, that will give you access to all of our library resources.

Finally, the Library Gateway will open, with Library Search and all the other features you’re used to when you’re working on campus.

Arrrgh it won’t work!

If you’ve followed the steps above and still can’t get access to something, try repeating the same steps but in a different browser.  The Library Gateway works in most browsers, including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari.  We’ve noticed a few problems with Edge so best not use that.

If you’re stuck, get in touch.  Click on the ‘Contact’ link at the top of the Library Gateway to see the different ways you can reach us.  If you’re telling us about library resources that you can’t access, we’ll need to know:

  • as much information about it as possible – title, author, date of publication, etc
  • the web address of the page you were on when you got stuck (copy it from the browser address bar and paste it into email or chat)
  • who you are so we can help you – make sure you tell us your full name and student number (it’s on your SHUcard).
