The Amherst College Library

The Robert Frost Library, the main library at the College, stands in the center of campus and supports your Amherst education in many ways. The library has an excellent collection of books, journals, databases, films, CDs and other materials, and you can easily borrow materials from the Five Colleges and libraries nationwide. Subject librarians work with faculty to teach research in classes, and help is always available at the reference desk or online.
