Wellbeing at the Library: Collection Development and Programming
This presentation describes and justifies wellbeing activities at an academic library. Working in collaboration with the University Wellbeing Director, academic librarians have created a culture that promotes wellbeing at the Texas Woman’s University Libraries. The Wellbeing at the Library panelists will describe their experiences creating collections and programming which include the creation of a Wellbeing Collection, yoga sessions during midterms and finals, and eye strain prevention practices for cataloging staff. As libraries evolve with the 21st century by expanding offerings, collection development and programming are keeping pace by taking on new responsibilities to help serve academic communities.
