Work/Life Balance Books

As part of the work/life balance initiative here at UB, librarian Catherine Johnson has spent no less than 15 hours on campus each day this week.

Granted, part of that time was spent on The Vagina Monologues, but some of it was spent collecting books related to work/life balance that can be found right here in Langsdale. Here are some of the works on this topic you can find through our catalog.
