Al Maktoum Medical Library strive to offer excellent resources and services to support our patrons academic and intellectual pursuits, in addition to that our new Wellness Services aims to support our patron as a whole person. There are a number of ways academic libraries can support well-being, including developing spaces, services, and collections that help students to develop good emotional, social, physical, and mental health. The library can be a place that students can visit to calm the mind and refocus in the midst of a busy day. Given our technology-rich lives, there are times when it’s healthy to leave the screen behind, sit somewhere comfortable, and enjoy a good book. For libraries, this means creating spaces for relaxing and comfortable reading. Here at the Al Maktoum Medical Library, you’ll find a growing collection of resources designed to enhance and support your overall health and wellbeing. Our library welcomes everyone, whether it’s to study, to rest, or to recharge.
