Library resources

We have an extremely wide range of both internal and external resources available to help you address any difficulties you may be experiencing.

You may wish to explore the self-help literature available in the library, or find out about external sources of assistance that are relevant to you.

Library resources

A collection of self-help books from the Student Counselling Centre is housed in the University Library. These books address a variety of common problems and issues.

You can access these books whether you have attended the Student Counselling Centre or not. Sometimes a counsellor may suggest one of these books if you attend a counselling session.

The University of Cambridge has created an A-Z list of self-help book suggestions.
