Wellbeing and Fiction Collection

Wellbeing Collection

The wellbeing collection is located at the back of the library, and we have books on a range of topics including mindfulness, managing stress, emergency poetry, overcoming perfectionism, and much more. These books can be borrowed either at the issue desk or by using our self-service machine with automatic renewals.

There is also a suggestion box for those who wish to make recommendations for this collection. Books can be recommended anonymously using one of the slips next to the box.

Paper copies of leaflets from the counseling service are also available online for download.

Fiction Collection

We have a small fiction collection, which is an opportunity for you to relax and unwind away from your studies. This collection can be found on the right as you enter the main library.

Book recommendations can be made for any collection by using our book suggestion form which can be found on the main library homepage.
