Hi Claire,

We have a Wellbeing Collection.

When we first acquired it, all the books were shelved together, but it was decided to interfile them.

So students can find the books by looking at the Wellbeing Collection resource list: https://bham.rl.talis.com/lists/02BDABFA-C969-ACDC-05F0-A4C912402DE8.html

https://intranet.birmingham.ac.uk/as/libraryservices/library/libraries-and-opening-hours/our-collections/wellbeing.aspx

The books were chosen by Student Support.

Helen.

Hi All,

I am an Academic Skills Officer at Edge Hill University, currently taking part in our internal Development of Potential programme. As such, I am drafting a business case as part of the coursework I need to submit.

My business case is looking at the potential of introducing a range of 30 suitably selected self-help books (covering key topics from Careers, Learning Services and Student Services). This collection would be displayed together and marketed as a specific ‘Shelf-Help’ collection, available to students and staff.

This type of project has been familiar in public libraries for the past few years, under the Reading Well: Books on Prescription banner. Please see: https://readingagency.org.uk/adults/quick-guides/reading-well/, if you would like to find out more.

As this is something we currently don’t deliver as a bespoke offer (despite holding many advice, guidance, self-help type books – but none shelved together as a collection in their own right) I would be interested to know if any other university libraries offer any similar schemes?

I am particularly interested in…

- The promotion of self-help titles as a means of support offered to both students/staff and any successes or pitfalls from this.
- Other reading for leisure initiatives, particularly in relation to wellbeing.

If you do provide self-help books, could you please answer the following questions:

o Do you currently promote self-help books to students /staff? If yes, how and which titles?

o Are self-help books accessed regularly and how many books do you have available for loan?

o Which key topics do self-help books support?

o How do you feel a carefully curated selection of self-help books is/would be beneficial to students / staff?

o Do you have any other comments in relation to ‘Shelf-Help’ as a potential resource for students / staff?

Please reply to me direct at [log in to unmask] and I will summarise for the list.

Thank you for time.

Regards,
Claire
