The Herbarium Database, an application for Microsoft Access, is used to create a simple, searchable database of herbarium specimens. In addition, the application allows the user the printing of specimen labels from records in the database. Its creators believe that the Herbarium Database may be most appropriately used in personal and small institutional herbaria.

Flowering Plants of Western New York is a portfolio of 495 photographs of wildflowers, flowering shrubs and vines growing without cultivation in Western New York state. The portfolio frequently includes several images of a species including habitat views, general views, and detailed views of the inflorescence, flowers, and fruits. This non-technical resource is intended for use by educators, students, and naturalists. To assist this audience, the portfolio employs the two popular field guides to the flora of the Northeastern United States; Wildflowers of Northeastern/North Central North America (Roger Tory Peterson, 1968) and the Newcomb's Wildflower Guide (Lawrence Newcomb, 1977).
The Eckert Herbarium enjoyed a full year of accessibility after a long COVID closure.
The herbarium closed in December 2020 due to the novel coronavirus. Some activities continued despite the closure. ECK will reopen in August 2021.
