Welcome to the subject guide for Psychology. 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 recent book Freud in Cambridge, describe it as "a remarkable collection of early twentieth-century psychoanalytic works."
If you wish to have an extra introductory reading* in the Psychology subject, the following resources can help you to have an overview of the subject.
*Please, note that those resources ARE NOT mandatory reading for exams or essays unless your lecturer requests it during a lecture or on the official course reading list (available in the course paper guide and online reading list). This is just an extra introductory reading for those seeking it.
