The Buffalo City Directories in the Grosvenor Room of the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library are a valuable source of information for local history and genealogical researchers. Access to the information contained in these city directories is vital to anyone researching local people/places in history so it is necessary to provide digital access for the frequent and continuous use they receive. City directories are bound annual publications that contain print listings of the city residents and businesses along with useful historical information in the front of each edition. B&ECPL houses the most complete run of Buffalo City Directories available. It is the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library's goal to make available digitally all city directories in the public domain.
