Until 2004 there had been almost no page dedicated to the artistic amber working in the history of Russian culture. The publishing work of the Amber Museum eliminated this informational vacuum. Supported by the Government of Kaliningrad oblast, also by partners and philanthropists of the museum publishing of the exhibitions catalogues, books about Kaliningrad masters, monographs on scientific researches, conferences materials began. Part of every edition is necessarily sent to all libraries of Kaliningrad oblast, as well as to the Russian Central Institute of Bibliography.
