Life Topics Collection

A collection of books selected to help students navigate personal and social issues.

About the Life Topics Book Collection

The Life Topics collection is a selection of self-help and informational books to help students navigate some of life's challenges and potentially sensitive issues such as: anxiety, stress, gender identity, body image, happiness, relationships, finances, spirituality, study habits, health, sex, humor, diversity, race, and more.

The Life Topics collection has temporarily been relocated. Students, faculty and staff can use the BearCat search box below to locate items they want and to virtually browse the shelves, then submit a request for materials they would like to check out (see LaMP instructions here). We cannot safely let patrons browse our books due to the length of time the Covid-19 virus can survive on the surface of library materials and our need to quarantine anything that gets used/handled for 7 days.

If you have topics or specific books you would like to see added to the collection, let us know! Contact: Marianne Hebert
