Bibliotherapy is a term used to describe the use of books to help people understand and cope with emotional, social and/or academic issues. Biblio is the Greek word for books and therapy comes from therapeia meaning "to help medically".

What is the bibliotherapy collection?
The bibliotherapy collection refers to titles purchased with a specific bequest to the university some years ago. These titles were added to the Sydney Jones Library, and are catalogued and classified in the same way as other books.
