Library Services

The Process Work Institute Library is available to students, faculty and staff of Process Work Institute. The primary purpose of the library is to serve a diverse community of learners by providing access to resources that support the institute curriculum and by motivating students to acquire self-directed research and writing skills. The library serves the greater community of Process Oriented Psychology practitioners through access to research materials and manuscripts.

Process Work Institute requires every student to have a Multnomah County Library card, which allows the student to check out books from Multnomah County Libraries and access electronic resources, including databases, ebooks and reference resources. With the Multnomah County Library card, students gain access to the Oregon Library Passport Program, which allows card holders to use resources available at Portland State University Library and Oregon Health and Science University Library. 

(See the Student Handbook for a complete description of Library services and instructions for obtaining a library card at Multnomah County Library.)
