Happy Libraries Week!

Today marks the start of Libraries Week 2018. We’ll be writing all week about how you can maintain your digital wellbeing, whether that’s how to spot a phishing scam or how to manage your ‘Digital Footprint’. Today, we wanted to focus on some of the ways in which we work with Student Wellbeing Services to support you.

Bibliotherapy Guide.

We worked with the Student Wellbeing Services to develop the Bibliotherapy Guide as a list of self-help books, websites and other resources on a range of topics. It’s constantly being developed, but if you have anything you’d like to suggest do contact us at LibHelp@hw.ac.uk.

Power Hours. 

Wellbeing Services have been running sessions as part of the Power Hours programme on the Edinburgh Campus for close to 10 years. For example, this week they are running the following sessions on the Edinburgh Campus:

Self Care and Your Studies: Tuesday 9 October, 15.30 – 17:00.

This session focuses on how to manage your wellbeing and how to deal with the challenges and stresses of students life. Run by the Student Counselling Service, this workshop will provide an opportunity to think about your work/life balance, discover resources and gather helpful tips to enhance your University experience.

How to Stop Putting Things Off: Friday 12 October, 12:15 – 13:15, Anderson Room .

Putting things off until tomorrow? Avoiding completing tasks altogether? Feeling de-motivated? Putting off or delaying starting work can result in us feeling more stressed and under pressure, yet we can find ourselves repeating this behaviour time and time again. This workshop will explore: the reasons why we put things off, what we can do about it and ideas to help with motivation and “getting started”.
