May Highlights - Knowledge Exchange Week and Library Wellbeing Collection

Following on from the success of our previous Knowledge Exchange Weeks, we are delighted to announce that the Library will be hosting our fifth Knowledge Exchange Week programme, which will run from 27th until 31st May 2024

The University of Edinburgh's Knowledge Exchange Week will provide a unique opportunity for library and cultural heritage professionals from all backgrounds and career stages to learn about the University's work in these areas and to share knowledge and best practice with colleagues globally.

The Library supports wellbeing through buying, promoting and providing access to a range of relevant print and electronic resources. There is a display of some of the print items in our Library Wellbeing Collection on the ground floor, in the Main Library, George Square throughout April and May 2024.
