2015–2016 Library Projects

The SFCP Library did many things in the past year that were new for it and for the staff. Probably 2015 will go down as the year that the archival resources came under more professional handling, as befits their age and historical value. This includes paper archives, audiovisual productions, photographs, and other types of document care and storage.

2016. It seems like a date that should be some time in the distant future to those of us who survived the 20th century. It’s also a new year in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy for those of us who use the SFCP Library, which is continuing with projects begun in the old year and busily planning new ones for the new. If you haven’t been by the library in a while, stop by and be astonished by the resources that we have available (and don’t forget to chat with the library staff and interns, too!)

End of the year thoughts

The end of the year is a time for stock-taking and reflection.

It has been a busy year for the SFCP Library. Circulation of books and other library materials were actually slightly higher than last year, and our remote users increased their numbers to about 500 online readers of eBooks, databases, and online journals. Fewer people visited the library, it is true, than before, but the ones who did seemed to have just as much of an appetite for the printed word as before.

Things have been busy at the SFCP Library throughout the summer. Greg and I, in addition to meeting a continuing call for library services on the part of summer patrons, have been focusing on a select portfolio of projects. These include:

Library update:
Gregory and I are deep into the Windholz Archive, and his body of work about a new form of supervision that he called ‘Consensual Analysis’.

Emanuel Windholz (1903-1986) had a very interesting life in psychoanalysis and was once an important figure at the old San Francisco Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. One of the emegre analysts from Czechoslovakia, he was part of the psychoanalytic discussion groups in 1940’s San Francisco that served as the building blocks of SFPI&S. He served as the executive director of the new institute for many years, was on numerous psychology and psychoanalytic committees, held positions in national psychoanalytic associations, and had a private practice.

Archives Report:

Gregory, our new intern Shawn, and I are immersed in the Anna Maenchen Collection. The bad news is that there was an enormous amount of material that belonged in other collections in the boxes, and that there was no original order to guide us. The good news is that we have staff and volunteers with experience in archival reorganization and we’ve managed to catch most of the material that will either end up in other archival collections, become part of new archival collection sets, or remain with Maenchen’s papers. There is much material about Child Analysis in the 1950’s and ‘60’s!
