Giving to the Library
The mission of the Amherst College Library is both ambitious and simple: to provide our students, faculty, and the global reading public with access to the universe of information; and to ensure that Amherst students learn the skills necessary to conduct serious and meaningful research throughout their lives.
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 believe in these goals or in any of the specific efforts described below, please contact Bryn Geffert, the Librarian of the College: firstname.lastname@example.org; 413-542-2212. Help us maintain and develop the best liberal arts college library in the world.
The library always welcomes unrestricted contributions. No amount is too small to make a difference. A contribution here takes three minutes.
