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.)
Below is a small sample of some of the newest print materials in the library collection you may find useful in studying Developing Human Potential:
Note: The Library is changing to the Library of Congress Classification System. Instead of numbers on the spine of the book, the call number will start with a letter of the alphabet, ie. BF 503 R428 2017.
Temporarily, these books can be found by looking for the sign that says “LIBRARY OF CONGRESS”.
