Changes to Library Systems

We've nearly finished updating our library systems, but there are a few more changes coming up this week.
Library Systems Transition Period

From Friday 21 June...
Some changes relating to the Library PIN (for University members) and to the password required to log into StarPlus (for NHS staff and external members) will be made. You will be informed of any changes to your details by email before they are implemented.
The number of items that you may borrow at any time may change. The new limits are:
  • 35 for University staff and research students and NHS staff
  • 25 for all taught course students
  • 5 for external customers
The Find it @Sheffield A-Z list of electronic journals will be integrated within StarPlus and the Library web pages will direct to StarPlus as a result of this change. External databases may still direct you to the Find it A-Z list for a short period but a message will be available on that page to redirect you.

Within StarPlus, the 'View Online' tab providing access to journal articles and other electronic information will be called 'View It'. The 'Locations' and ‘Request’ tabs providing information about print material will be combined and renamed ‘Get It'.
