We also have two curated collections you can browse online. Clicking on the book image inside the Wakelet will take you to information about the item’s availability in the Library.

June Wellbeing image just title

Tying in with 10 Days of Wellbeing programme (SGUL login required) run by St George’s Staff Development team, we are running a book swap in the library foyer from  Monday 20 June to Friday 1 July, to promote reading for relaxation and pleasure, as well introducing a new collection of books.

Book Swap in the library foyer from 20 June – 1st July

From 20 June – 1 July, we’ll be putting out a trolley of fiction books in library for you to enjoy.  St George’s staff and student are free to pick a book to read (initial collection kindly donated by Library staff)  and to drop off a book on the trolley for sharing with others.

Mood-boosting books – available from 20 June

We have also added a brand new collection of mood-boosting books for our users. This collection includes poetry, novels, essays and more, picked  from a list suggested by the Reading Agency. Keep an eye out for the display in the Library, the mood-boosting books collection will be available for borrowing from 20 June 2016.

Schizophrenia – updated systematic review in Clinical Evidence

The Schizophrenia systematic review in Clinical Evidence has been updated, highlighting some of the major shortcomings of available trials in this field and an astonishing lack of supporting evidence for some treatment options. An essential read not just for practitioners of evidence-based mental health but also researchers and research funders in the field.
