Insider's Guide to Mulford Health Science Library and the Health Science Campus: Taking Care

Tips and hints for making the most of the Mulford Health Science Library and the Health Science Campus

Taking Care of Yourself

Professional school is rough. You have too much to learn in too little time. This page lists library resources and other campus resources to take the best possible care of yourself.

If you are in a very hard space and you need some one to talk with, please call of text 988. The 988 Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals in the United States. The service is available in English, Spanish, and American Sign Language. There is also an option to connect with the Veterans Crisis Line.

Mulford Library Resources

Did you know that taking micro-breaks can improve feelings of well-being, improve fatigue and performance? Activities that are not related to studying can give your body and brain a reset. The Mulford Stress-Free Zone can help! It's on the fifth floor, near the Cell Phone Zone, so you will get a little walk to and from the area and the available activities have nothing to do with studying. In the Zone, you'll find:

  • a collaborative jigsaw puzzle
  • paper-based puzzles (crossword, word search. etc.)
  • coloring sheets
  • journaling pages
  • origami (at certain times of the year)
  • Fuzzy and Wuzzy, Mulford's teddy bears (Please don't remove them from the library.)

We also have a Spirograph set that you can check out from the circ desk.

We are always looking for recommendations for additional silent activities.
