Robert Frost Library is the main library on campus. Frost houses collections in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, as well as general-interest science materials. You can get help with research or ask us anything at the first-floor desks. Books and bound periodicals are shelved on the 3rd floor and B- and C-levels of the library. Current periodicals and reference materials are on the 1st floor; DVDs and videos are on A-level; microfilm and microfiche are on the 2nd floor. Check the floor plans or ask a staff member for more details.
Archives & Special Collections, on A-level, hold rare books, collections of special interest, and materials about the history of the college. Check out the Amherst College Digital Collections 24/7 at http://acdc.amherst.edu.
Online resources, such as databases, e-books, e-journals, and digitized primary-source collections are also available. Amherst College faculty, staff, and students can get off-campus access to these resources or use them in the library. In most cases, the general public can use these materials in the library on a walk-in basis.
