Alternatively, the City Library has the Sheffield Star on microfilm, but you need to book a viewer. They also have files of items relating to specific subjects from the local papers.
As Andy has said the City Library is probably your best bet, I have also been to the Sheffield Star to view archives in the past, but I was shocked and disapointed in how their archive system worked.
You will need the The Local Studies Library section, upstairs in the main library. Local newspapers are on microfilm. The main titles are the Sheffield & Rotherham Independent 1819 - 1938, the Sheffield Daily Telegraph 1855 - 1986, The Star 1890 to date, The Sheffield telegraph (weekly) 1989 to date and the Green Un 1907 to date. There are subject files of news cuttings from 1958 to date, mostly on microfiche .
