April 13, 2021 by Cheryl | 0 comments

The library is pleased to provide access to Cameron’s Collection for Student Mental Health, a set of 30 ebooks curated by Gale eBooks.  The collection provides easy-to-read information on mental health topics relevant to college students, such as anxiety, depression, addiction, positive psychology, wellness, and more.  While not a substitute for professional care, the collection may be useful for students who wish to explore these topics privately for personal use or research.

Leeward students, faculty and staff may access the collection via our A-Z Databases page.  Off-campus users may be prompted to enter UH login credentials.

National Library Week 2021: Welcome to your library!

National Library Week 2021 Display

 

Celebrate National Library Week with Leeward Library! Like many other libraries across the world, Leeward Library has adjusted our operations in response to COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped connecting you to the resources you need to learn, enjoy, and ultimately succeed!

Asian Voices…

Recently, there has been a widespread acknowledgment of violent acts occurring against Asian communities across the United States. Leeward Library would like to take this opportunity to affirm our commitment to uplifting local and Asian community voices as a reminder that libraries continue to allow us to feel represented and accepted.

In conjunction with National Library Week and Asian Heritage Month in May, we take this moment to showcase stories by and of Asian voices in the hope that it encourages you to engage and create your own stories, and share them in solidarity, awareness, and compassion with one another. Welcome To Your Library, where we hope you will feel seen and safe in your learning.

Please visit our National Library Week Activities page for a selection of Asian Voices reads, informative articles and videos, and other National Library Week activities!
