Articles about Jung:

The first place to try is OneSearch on the library’s main page.   You’ll find that a simple search for “Carl Jung” will turn up 10,472 entries.  Focus your search will qualifying words and look into specific online resources for the humanities, such as JSTOR.



Online Resources



You will find endless references to Jung and his works on the internet, and various theories and perspectives that are based on Jung.  The vast majority of these are highly questionable.  For this reason, I advise you not to spend much time googling Jung as there is little likelihood that you will be well informed by what you find and a high likelihood that you will be misinformed.   Only works that have been officially published and refereed may be used in your paper and bibliography.  You can get these via the library’s online resources.

This is an excellent online concordance from The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism.  Here is the website: http://aras.org/concordance.





Form and Citation

The formatting of your paper, including all citations and bibliographic entries, should follow the Chicago style.  The manual for this style is available at the circulation desk of the library under the title A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, These, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers.

Quoting from The Jung Reader:

If quoting from Jung’s writings in The Jung Reader, you need to quote the paragraph number (not page number). Be sure to differentiate between Jung as author and Tacey as editor. Eg: C. G. Jung, ‘The Role of the Unconscious’ (1918), in D. Tacey, ed., The Jung Reader (London: Routledge, 2012), para. 17.
