The Bodleian Libraries collection of Self-Help Books


Following student feedback, the Bodleian Libraries Disability Subcommittee recommended the creation of a collection of self-help books to support students who may experience difficulties during their time in Oxford. As a result, the Bodleian Libraries worked in collaboration with the Counselling Service and College Libraries to acquire the titles.


The titles are available as ebooks and University members can access them remotely by clicking on the link in the title of each book. Your Single Sign-On (eg abcd1234) will be required for authentication. If you require any additional information, please contact
