Recently added to the library:
Kabbalah and Psychoanalysis (2012), by Michael Eigen (BF173/.E34/2012)
From the Preface and Introduction: “I am not a Kabbalah scholar, but aspects of its teachings have become part of me, as has psychoanalytic work. The two have many points of convergence.”
The Center Cannot Hold: My Journey Through Madness (2007), by Elyn R. Saks (RC464/.S25/A3/2007)
From the book jacket: “It is the most lucid and hopeful memoir of living with schizophrenia I have ever read.” (Oliver Sacks)
Please take a look at the tab labeled “NOVEL Databases” for fulltext resources made available to us through the New York State Library’s NOVEL program. If you’re on a library PC, the links will take you into the databases automatically, or just let me know if you’d like the password to log in from elsewhere.

Please come buy some great psychoanalytic books! You can find them standing on my desk during my regular hours (3-8 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and 1:30-6:30 Thursday). I’ll be adding new titles throughout the week.

A student has contributed a fantastic tip for viewing PEP on smartphones: if it’s hard to read on your native browser, download Opera. Then within the Opera Settings, make sure to choose Single Column View, and the formatting should be much more manageable. Let me know how it works for you!
If you need to look at a book or journal not held in our library, and are in a rush, I can often write you a one-day pass to most area libraries. To see who might have the item you want, check out:
which lets you search for a title, then enter your zip code to find libraries close to you. Please note that libraries have their own policies, so I’ll double-check to make sure you can visit. Also, you won’t be able to take materials out - for that, please talk to me about doing an interlibrary loan.
If you got here through the new Library page on the CMPS website, you may have noticed that there’s a link to our CMPS library catalog. It’s now on the web and accessible from anywhere.
Tip – to see if a book is available, look at the “Holdings” and “Available” notes. Holdings = copies we own, while Available = copies that should be on shelf.
