Library and Student Facilities
The Library at Cairnmillar is a highly specialised library resource, aimed at the curriculum requirements of our students, psychological research and clinical psychology. The Library contains an eclectic mix of resources, representing modern psychological thought, research and learning, as well as a substantial collection of classic writings in the field of psychology, including original works of Freud, Albee, and many other pioneers of psychology.
Over the last 12 months, Cairnmillar has invested significantly in the Library, and the facility has been extensively improved with new materials acquired; a qualified and experienced Librarian appointed; a state of the art Library Management System introduced; and access to online full text data retrieval available via EBSCO Host.
In this time, the entire collection has been re-catalogued to international standards, with full abstracting undertaken of all resources to assist our students and staff gain access to relevant material. The Test Library of psychological tests has also been included in this database of collections.
Students and staff are able to meet with the Librarian to gain research and informational assistance in all facets of their learning, research and clinical requirements. This includes individual sessions in developing literature searches relevant to their research proposal, as well as group sessions aimed at library and research skills.
As Cairnmillar continues to evolve and grow, so too does the library service. The Library has developed into a highly relevant, responsive and valued component of our organisation, and is striving towards being regarded as a leader in the field of specialised psychology libraries in Australia.
