Health Sciences Library Leisure Reading Collection

Established in 2021, the Health Sciences Library Leisure Reading Collection allows current health sciences students to view their future careers in new and unique ways and helps to introduce them to the conversation around implicit bias in medicine early in their education. For faculty, staff, and hospital employees, this collection provides access to reading materials that go beyond the classroom, an introduction to new and diverse perspectives, and an opportunity for healthy escapism. These emphases for the collection dovetail with the WVU Libraries' Strategic Roadmap goals and the WVU Wellbeing Priorities.
