Daemen University - Daemen University Library


Daemen University is a private, nonsectarian, co-educational, comprehensive college in the attractive suburban location of Amherst, New York. The College was established in 1947 as Rosary Hill College by the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity, whose foundress was Magdalene Daemen, a Dutch woman dedicated to working with the poor. Originally a liberal arts college for women, the College became co-educational in 1971 and nonsectarian in 1976, changing its name to Daemen College. In March 2022 it became Daemen University. The Daemen University Library, located in the Research and Information Commons, manages an archival collection that includes publications, photographs, and other materials documenting the rich history of the College.

Daemen University - Daemen University Library is a member of the Western New York Library Resources Council.
