Students studying in Frost Library
The mission of the Amherst College Library is to "foster inquiry, discovery, and creation." The library fulfills this mission by teaching the craft of research, organizing information and leading others to it, producing freely available scholarship, curating collections for posterity, and building community.
We pride ourselves on our devotion to excellent teaching; our enterprising and even audacious efforts to rethink publishing; our uncompromising advocacy for equitable and unlimited access to information; and our fierce commitment to the liberal arts.
If you support these goals or any of our specific efforts, please consider making a gift.
