With the advent of social media and online communication, libraries have lost some of their status as a community hub. Whereas the Great Library used to be a place to bump into colleagues while looking up a case or brushing up on an obscure point of law, it has now transitioned to a virtual setting with one-on-one interaction with a librarian.
While the venue may have changed, libraries are still an important hub of information and connection. They’re also one of the few remaining places where a physical space to work is free and welcoming. Use our location to work undisturbed, plan before your trial starts, or even relax and practice some mindfulness.
We’ve curated some articles from our online sources to provide more information and guidance on well-being in all stages of your career.
