The area is called "Local Studies" they are only open: Wednesdays 9.30am -8pm, Thursday 9.30am -5.30pm and the same for Friday and Saturday, they are closed Sunday Monday and Tuesday. HOWEVER if you go to www.sheffield.gov.uk/archives and do a little exploring there is a treasure trove of resources that can be downloaded and you do not need a membership. The library shares this with Sheffield Archives.
As Trevor said if we find a resource that someone else could use, share it. The only thing that I could not find was anything that related to part of the project that I am doing, oh well.
Oh I nearly forgot, the group that is doing theirs on women, as you walk into the Local Studies area look to your right, there is a picture of some women who were in a strike over mining and there is web address on the bottom of the picture.
