Need to locate an AMP?

You can download a listing of all AMPs registered with the NIMAC by logging into the AU portal, clicking on Contact Information, selecting AMPs from the menu, and then clicking the Export button.

For more specific searching, you may also wish to use the online AMP Directory at the American Printing House for the Blind. This database is not connected with the NIMAC, but is a free, self-listing service for AMPs who wish to promote their services. You can search the directory here: AMP Directory.
