About the Library
The Institute owns a specialized library, which is the most extensive among similar libraries of other universities.
The Library began to form in 1991 starting with professional literature received by the Institute as donations from various international psychotherapy associations, as well as from individuals.
Currently, its collections comprise about 7000 books, journals, and articles on various areas of psychology, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in Russian and other languages. Among them are the books and magazines on psychoanalysis from the early XX century to the present day.

Many of the available books and articles were never published in Russia before and were translated into Russian for the first time by the Institute's specialists.

Acquisition for the Library stocks is carried out taking into account the needs of the educational process, scientific, practical and clinical work of students and teachers at the Institute. Replenishment of the Library is based on the recommendations from the teachers of the Institute departments and its leading specialists in the field of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. This ensures that the purchased literature meets modern professional standards.

The unique collection of foreign psychoanalytic literature includes works by Z.Freud, O.Fenichel, K.Menninger, C.Brenner, A.Freud, M.Klein, M.Mahler, O.Fraiberg, E.Furman, J.Bowlby, J.Sandler, O.Kernberg, J.Chasseguet-Smirgel, as well as thematic monographs by the E. R.Kriss research group, of the International Psychoanalytic Association, and many other works.
The library possesses a unique electronic archive of articles published in the professional journals of the American Psychoanalytic Association (APA) and the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA).

The catalogues (alphabetical and systematic) and the card indexes of foreign literature and translations make it easier to work with the library's collection. Since 2010, the IPPP library has maintained an Electronic catalog that includes descriptions of all the publications in the stock.
