There are many specialist print and online resources for Psychology in Cambridge. These pages give you an overview of the resources and research support that libraries can offer.

The Department of Psychology Library, housed in the main Psychology building on the Downing Site, has a first class collection of print resources and is a quiet and comfortable place to work. The MacCurdy Psychopathology Library is a small separate library based on the books bequeathed by Dr John Thomson MacCurdy, Cambridge University Lecturer in Psychopathology from 1923-1947. John Forrester and Laura Cameron, in their 2017 book Freud in Cambridge, describe it as "a remarkable collection of early twentieth-century psychoanalytic works."
