Bank Street Library

Welcome to the Bank Street Library

The Library is home to a children’s collection, a graduate school collection, and electronic resources (databases and computers). We offer spaces for patrons to enjoy books with little ones, work on assignments, and engage in group work. We also host several events: Library Salons, BookFest @ Bank Street, and the Irma Black Award ceremony, to name a few. We hope to see you soon on the 5th floor of Bank Street College.

Off-Campus Access to Databases

  1. Sign-in with your Bank Street email address and Password.
  2. Some online classes have their own special access code.

Do We Have Access to JSTOR?

This question pops up every so often: Do we have access to JSTOR by virtue of being a student at Bank Street. If so, how do we access the JSTOR database. It does not seem obvious. The short answer is, no – we don’t have access to JSTOR. Our database providers are EBSCOhost and ProQuest.
