We pride ourselves in being a world class, dynamic research library inspiring intellectual discovery and learning, sitting at the heart of the University community and working collaboratively to deliver outstanding experiences for our students, researchers, teachers and visitors.

We have a reputation for excellence in customer service and leadership in the sector, working with our networks, including the White Rose Libraries Consortium, the N8, RLUK, LIBER and IATUL, at the forefront of developments in open and digital scholarship. We consistently appear amongst the highest ranked Russell Group Institutions in the UK National Student Survey.

We are consistently ranked in the top 100 of the world’s universities, but there’s so much more to us than that. By joining the University, you will be joining award-winning teams and departments who are all working together to make the University of Sheffield a remarkable place to work.
