We provide carefully chosen resources to help with your welfare, well-being, and study skills at Ƶ.

These books are available on the corner shelves outside the entrance to the West Reading Room on the Library’s Lower Floor.

 

 

Purpose and Use of the Collection

The Library’s Student Welfare and Study Skills Collection held within the corner shelves outside the entrance to the West Reading Room is a joint initiative between Ƶ’s Welfare Team and the Library.  The Collection is based on a scheme that has run successfully in other universities.  All Ƶ students and staff can borrow these books in the normal way.  Alternatively, the Cox or Salvesen Fellows, New College Nurse, New College Doctor, or a peer supporter might recommend a book to someone who comes to see them with a personal problem.

Reading has been shown to be very effective in managing and responding to personal difficulties or challenges.  Many of the books in the Collection contain useful exercises or questionnaires — but please do not mark or write in the books themselves.  The Collection has been assembled in consultation with the Oxford University Counselling Service and the Ƶ GPs.

The books may be helpful on their own, but reading a book can also be the first step to identifying or tackling a problem.  This may prompt a student to seek further advice and support from the Ƶ’s Welfare Team, the Counselling Service, or a doctor.  This is particularly important if reading the books leads to strong or difficult feelings.

The resources also provide practical information and guidance to help you study and research effectively and rewardingly.

 

Provide Feedback and Suggest New Resources

If you would like to make a comment about the Student Welfare and Study Skills Collection, or you wish to suggest new books to be added to the Collection, you are warmly encouraged to contact the Welfare Team.  You may also contact the Team with regard to welfare issues you may be experiencing.

 

Other Assistance

The Library Office is staffed 8.30 am till 5.00 pm, weekdays.  Library staff are pleased to assist you in making the most of all the Library’s collections and services; please ask us for help at any time.  Further help specifically geared to Freshers is also available from the Bodleian Libraries.
