Library memberships at the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco are available to therapists, students, researchers and the general public in the SF Bay Area who are interested in Jungian ideas or are involved in personal or professional Jungian studies.

Membership is for one year at a time, either from July 1 to June 30, or from January 1 to December 31 of the upcoming year. Membership privileges will start immediately upon payment and last until the next following subscription year. Additionally, the Jung Institute offers a Friends of the Institute membership. Friends of the Institute receive benefits that include use of the library as well as discounts on Institute Public Programs and invitations to special events.

The Library has a comprehensive collection of Jungian materials, as well as materials in mythology, symbolism, alchemy, religion and psychology in general. The collection includes some unique videotapes and DVDs, an extensive audio collection of the Institute’s public programs, Jungian and other topical journals – both online and print – and many hard-to-find papers. Our catalog provides access to records of the whole collection, including journal articles and reviews from the primary Jungian journals.

The Library is open for use to subscribers on weekdays from 10 am to 5 pm, during the Institute’s business hours. New subscribers are asked to come in for an initial orientation to the Library. We do not have a book drop for return of books after hours, but items can be renewed by phone or email, and returned by insured mail. Subscribers can check out circulating materials from the library, and may renew them. Most items may be checked out for a month at a time. DVDs may be checked out for a week.
