The Amberton Library has about 14,000 volumes and is very focused. Only books on topics that support the courses taught at Amberton are chosen to be added to the library. The library catalog is a good place to begin research on your topic. This provides an index to all of the books, videos, and audiocassettes in the collection.


Searching is done by Author, Title, or Subject. Keyword searches may also be done in the Title field. This is similar to a title search. Choose “Title” and type your keyword(s). A listing of all books containing your keyword(s) in the title will appear.
