So, you’re in the library and you need to print – here are your options
Option 1 – transfer money from your SHUcard – recommended anytime
Your SHUcard is key to your student life, with it you can access the libraries, borrow books and laptops, automatically log into a printer, attend exams etc. You can also add money to your SHUcard to go ‘cashless’.
Once you’ve got money on your SHUcard you can spend it in various ways at cafes, uni shops or you can transfer it to your ‘printing account’ (Papercut)
If you’re leaving uni for the summer or have finished your course – here’s what you need to know!
Do the libraries close over the summer? No!We’re open every day of the year 24/7/365! Just remember your SHUcard.And if you need help we’ve got that covered too… You’ll find Helpdesk opening hours and the different ways you can get in touch here. If you need help with your academic skills here’s the weekly schedule for The Bridge – it’s above the café in Adsetts.
Where can I access to books over the vacation? Are you going home for the summer or if you live in Sheffield – do you have friends at other unis that are coming back to Sheffield for the vacation?
Then SCONUL Access might be the answer. It’s a scheme which allows many university students to borrow books or use books at other libraries in the scheme across the country. Find out more on the SCONUL Access site.
If friends are visiting you in Sheffield they may find our library visitor guide useful.
Can I connect to WiFi? Are you planning on visiting another institution over the summer – or have friends from other unis wanting to use our libraries?
Eduroam could be the answer. Check out participating universities and how to connect here
My course has finished, what happens to my IT account? You can continue to access IT facilities until 31st July or until the Faculty Office notifies us you have completed – which ever is sooner. Here’s what you need to know
You may also be interested in exporting your contacts from your university email – here’s how
And finally there’s Alumni Connect – read about the benefits here
It’s the new self-service Day Pass Kiosks. You’ll find one in the entrance of each library, which you can start using from Monday 7th March.
We’re introducing the kiosks to save you time queuing up at Reception for a day pass – if you’ve forgotten your SHUcard!
Just type in your username and password and follow the on screen instructions to get your pass. You can then use it to swipe in and out at Adsetts and in at Collegiate library for the next 24 hours.
What you need to know
the day pass is just for access to the library for the next 24 hoursand can’t be used to borrow books, collect reserved books or borrow a self service laptop (24hrs starts when you issue your day pass)
it’s also a temporary replacement for your SHUcard and your SHUcard will be blocked by the library until the day pass expires in 24 hours (24hrs starts when you issue your day pass)
day passes are limited to five per term so only get one if you really have to!
if you’ve lost your SHUcard you can get a replacement from the Main Reception at Howard Street or Reception at Heart of the Campus
If you have any problems using the kiosks just ask at Reception or the Helpdesk for advice.
Over the summer we have installed new exit gates at the Adsetts Library. Our libraries are safe and secure places to meet and study and these new gates are designed to enhance this as they let us know who is in the building at all times. They also let us know at a glance how many people are in the library so we can see when our busy times are and target our resources to improve the service.
The same gates will be installed at Collegiate at a later date as part of a project to refurbish the whole of the Foyer and entrance area in the library.
From Monday 5 October you will need to swipe your SHUcard when you leave the Adsetts library, in exactly the same way as you do to enter it. So please have your card at the ready when you need to leave.
We’d love to hear your comments about this new development. Contact us and have your say.
Lots of people are new at Sheffield Hallam and just starting to use the learning centres. Here are five things to get you started:
Where? Adsetts Learning Centre is at City Campus, just off Arundel Gate, and Collegiate Learning Centre is at Collegiate Campus next to Collegiate Crescent. If you’d some help finding us, have a look at the campus maps.
When? We’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
What do I need? Your SHUcard – please bring it with you to get into the learning centres and borrow books and other things.
Where can I work? That depends on you. We’ve got quiet and silent study areas, individual PCs where you can work on your own, and group rooms. Both learning centres have a cafe as well for when you need to take a break.
Where can I get help? If you’ve got a question about borrowing books, connecting to wi-fi, printing or anything else library or IT-related, come along to the Helpdesk. Adsetts Helpdesk is in the middle of Level 4 and Collegiate Helpdesk is on the ground floor, next to the entrance.
Those of you who use Collegiate Learning Centre will know that we’ve had the all-in-one printers for black & white and colour printing there for a while. Well, it’s the same at Adsetts now and you can do everything on the all-in-one printers.

To print, all you need to do is

use your SHUcard to log in to any of the all-in-one printers – they’re on every level of the learning centres
release the print job and your work will print out
We’ll be putting two new all-in-one printers in Adsetts cafe as well, so there’ll be more places to print than ever.
