Western New York Campus Libraries (Amherst, Buffalo, and Southtowns)

The WNY Virtual Libraries site includes resources for the Amherst, Buffalo, and Southtowns campuses of Bryant & Stratton College.  We support our students, faculty, and staff by offering a number of online services including reference, bibliographic instruction, and by providing a variety of electronic resources which supplement the degree programs of the college.

Our library collections include over 47 electronic databases which provide access to millions of full-text journals, newspapers, eBooks, and specialized industry and professional reports. All databases are available both on and off campus via single sign-in.

The WNY Libraries collaborates with campus Skills Assistance and Learning Resource Centers which specialize in providing tutoring and testing services to students of the college.

I welcome you to our libraries and hope you will enjoy working in our collaboratively supportive educational environment.
