Amherst Library StaffAmherst College Library named college library of the year
The Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) has named us a winner of its 2015 Excellence in Academic Libraries Award. The prestigious prize honors one college library, one university library and one community college library as “outstanding in furthering the educational missions of their institutions.” An ACRL press release about the award highlighted the library's "transformation to focus on its objectives of teaching students research skills, promoting and enabling universal access to information, and creating a new model of academic publishing.”
