Members may use the reference library housed at the AGS office in Greenfield, MA by appointment with the AGS office. When not in violation of copyright laws, some materials may be scanned or photocopied for a fee.
Please note that rare, old, and out-of-print books as well as dissertations and theses are no longer housed in the AGS office; they have been transferred to the Department of Special Collections and University Archives of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and may be consulted in the university’s DuBois Library.
A listing of these titles can be found at the following URL (please note that clicking on this link will direct you away from the AGS website to Special Collections and University Archives, University of Massachusetts, Amherst): http://scua.library.umass.edu/umarmot/association-for-gravestone-studies-3/
