BPSI Collaboration with WGBH’s Library and Archives
Grete Bibring’s video interview with Oliver Cope has been posted online! Click on the link to view: Psychoanalysis: A Personal View, WGBH, 1975. In the fall of 2013, BPSI Archives worked with the WGBH Archives, becoming curators of WGBH’s Psychology One programs from the 1957-58 and a video recording of Grete Bibring’s Interview with Oliver Cope, 1975. Our archivist, Olga Umansky, MLS, teamed up with Murray Cohen, PhD, a long time BPSI member, to create a historic commentary to the televised psychology lectures of Dr. Edwin Boring (click here to watch Psychology One episodes online). Sanford Gifford, MD, Director of BPSI Archives, shared his biographical notes about Hanns Sachs, who was Dr. Boring’s analyst and journal co-editor. BPSI Archives also contributed a transcript, metadata, and various biographical materials to contextualize Grete Bibring’s interview with Dr. Cope (DVD is available on loan from the library). WGBH’s Media Library and Archives are attempting to digitize their historic video collections with the support of the Melon Foundation and American Archive. You can read about WGBH’s digital preservation efforts in the Boston Globe article from November 15, 2013.
Please contact Olga Umansky, MLS, Librarian/Archivist, for any questions about BPSI library and archives.
